OJIO Raw Organic Tricolor Quinoa
Product of Bolivia
Nestled in between the mystical Salar de Uyuni salt flats and the high peaks of the Andes Mountains are the expansive multicolored fields of Quinoa we source.
Nutrition: Because of its proximity to the salt flats and the volcanic soil of that region of the Andes, OJIO Raw Organic Tricolor Quinoa is a naturally good source of magnesium, phosphorus, and iron. Containing a robust 5 grams of protein per serving, Quinoa is also a good source of fiber along with trace amounts of potassium, zinc, and calcium.
Profile: One of the more impressive qualities of Quinoa is its essential amino acid profile. Because of the broad spectrum of amino acids present in Quinoa, it comes very close to matching the standards set by the FAO for optimum human nutritional needs. While Quinoa is often used as a substitute for grains, it is in fact a seed making it gluten-free. Once the Quinoa is harvested, it is washed in spring water to remove its saponins and their bitter flavor. Quinoa is delicious when sprouted and can also be prepared just like rice.
- Considered a whole grain, but it is a seed.
- Pre-washed, non-GMO, wheat and gluten free.
- A good source of carbohydrates, fiber, iron, phosphorus, and magnesium.
- One serving has 5 grams of complete protein.
Serving Size: 1/4 Cup (42g)
