Roland Pre-Washed White Quinoa

Roland® Pre-Washed White Quinoa. Est. 1934. Gluten free. Whole grain - 45g or more per serving. Eat 48g or more of whole grains daily. Net Wt. 12 oz. (340 g). Known as the "mother grain", quinoa (keen-wah), was a staple of the ancient Incas and is still a mayor food source for the Quechua Indians of the Andean region of South America. Quinoa has higher protein content than any other grain. It also contains all eight essential amino acids, making it a complete protein- something usually only found in meat, dairy, and eggs. As quinoa is gluten-free, it is an excellent alternative for people who are allergic to wheat. Rolando Quinoa has been pre-washed in order to remove the naturally-occurring bitter coating known as saponin. Traditionally, saponin is removed with mechanical polishing, but this process causes the Quinoa to lose its germ kernel and much of its dietary fiber. The Roland foods method of pre-washing is strong enough to remove the saponin yet leave the germ kernel and dietary fiber intact, making it a whole grain food. Roland® Quinoa is also available in Red, Black, and Tri-Color. Non-GMO Project Verified. ©2016 Roland Food, LLC.
