Known as the "mother grain" quinoa (keen-wah), along with potatoes and corn was a staple of the ancient Incans and is still a major food source for the Quechua Indians of the Andean region of South America.
Quinoa has higher protein content that any other grain and contains all eight essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. As Quinoa is gluten free, it is an excellent alternative for people who are allergic to wheat and corn products.
Roland® 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 Quinoa 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.
