Cultivating the world’s finest quinoa
13,000 feet up on the arid, desolate Salar De Uyuni salt flat of Bolivia, traditional Quechua and Aymara farmers tend to fields of highly coveted “quinoa real,” or royal quinoa, an ancient variety grown only in this very spot. This pearl-shaped, nearly perfect nutritional source was so revered by the Incas that they called it “chisaya mama” or “mother grain.” When you taste our fluffy, flavorful Royal Pearl Quinoa, you’ll understand why.

Whole Grain contains all 8 essential amino acids.

 

For Alter Eco partners at Anapqui Co-op, fair trade practices and organic farming mean:
» 180 Villages building a better future
» 50,000 Native trees being replanted
» 98,000 Llamas to support healthy soils

Directions

Cooking Instructions:
1 cup quinoa + 1½ cups liquid = 4 servings

 

1. Rinse quinoa under cold water until water runs clear. Place quinoa and water or stock in a medium saucepan.
2. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until liquid is absorbed and germ has spiraled out, about 15 minutes.

 

Flavor Tip: Before adding liquid, sauté quinoa in pan with a dash of olive oil until slightly toasted, about five minutes.

excellent quality Great quality, tasty, good texture, organic, and fair trade. You can't lose. A bit more expensive than some brands, but worth it. March 24, 2014
Best Alternative to Rice & Pasta! I eat this about everyday... such a great substitute for rice or pasta. Easy to digest and tastes great. Very happy with the quality of this brand... especially for the price. February 4, 2014
Good Received all my quinoa, no complaints here!! February 2, 2014
Quick to prepare, great price I just toss a serving (rinsed) into whatever I am cooking, and in a few minutes the root emerges and it is chewy ready. I don't bother simmering in water for 10-15 minutes as it gets mushy January 6, 2014
Quinoa is very good for you. I received my order in just a few days and it was packed better than any other items I have ordered from other places. Thank you so much. Nora July 7, 2013
