The Incan Supergrain
What's left to say about quinoa? An ancient Andean crop revered by the Incas as "the mother of all grains," quinoa has only recently come to the attention of the rest of the world, shooting to superfood superstar status for its amazing nutritional profile. The best-known strength of quinoa is that it's one of the only complete protein sources in the plant world, boasting eight full grams of protein per cup, including amino acids lysine and isoleucine. It also has twice the fiber of most grains, aiding satiety to help you control your appetite. Packed with antioxidants and heart-healthy fatty acids, quinoa supports a healthy metabolism and overall wellbeing.
The Zint Difference:
Our organic white quinoa is grown thousands of meters above the sea level in the northern Andes of Peru on family-owned farms. The pure, cold, arid mountain air at these high altitudes provides our quinoa with ideal conditions to thrive. It also allows for lower drying temperatures, helping to preserve all of quinoa's delicate flavors and amazing nutrients. Once dried, the bitter outer saponin layer is removed by friction, giving our quinoa a wonderfully fluffy texture and mild, nutty flavor.
Gently rinse the quinoa grains with cold water while bringing a pot of water to a boil with a little salt. Add the quinoa, close the lid and simmer at low heat for 15 minutes. Remove it from the flame and let it sit for another 5 minutes before serving. You can also use a rice cooker. Serve the quinoa as a rice substitute, side dish, or integrate it into all kinds of creative recipes for a super-nutritious, gluten-free meal.
