Vitacost Whole Food Certified Organic Quinoa - Non-GMO -- 12 oz (340 g)
I've been eating quinoa for quite a while now and recently switched to this brand. I've ordered and eaten several packages now (both the regular and red) and every single package has a problem with a gritty, dirt type texture that I find each time I cook it. I rinse it well, but I still have the problem. I taste it with every other bite, which is not at all appealing. I keep hoping each new bag will be different, but so far, no luck and at this price, I don't want to waste it. Has anyone else experienced this? I guess it's time to switch to another brand.

My husband and I love this stuff. And our bird is in love! Never thought he would like this but he loves it.
Our only problem is the bags it comes in...seems as though they are not sealed as they should be and we had to contact customer service about the spilled contents. This happened 2 times, but they took care of it.

1st time to ever try Quinoa and I purchased this because it was Organic & NON-GMO and has a very good price.
I've already gone through 2 of these and just got more which just arrived the other day and plan to buy more. so good - so why change.
These do not need to be rinsed & rinsed to remove any bitter taste. The reason I know is that the 1st 2-3 times, I didn't know you should rinse, didn't and cooked it - No bitter taste to me.
1 cup Quinoa + 2 cups Water (or whatever liquid you use)

Good flavor. I mix with the red for color. Naturally nutty flavor. I use this like rice. It is a great alternative and a good source of protein.It is a low glycemic index food which is a plus. It is also organic and Non GMO which means a lot when trying to eat healthy.

Really good Quinoa
We use quinoa as a cereal, side dish, "breading" for fish and in other recipes. It cooks up perfectly and we enjoy its versitility.
