Best, cleanest quinoa I've purchased
on April 15, 2012
Quinoa has become a staple of my diet, and I've been looking for a reliable brand. The taste is great, but more notable is that this has been the cleanest quinoa I've encountered so far. Most people, myself included, prefer to have the bitter surface compounds washed away. The biggest issue for me is that while most brands claim to be washed, this is often simply not true. Subject them to any kind of rinsing, and the water will foam right up (the bitter compounds are surfactants, and will create a foam like soap). Upon washing this quinoa, I got almost nothing! A little fiber was washed away, but nothing more. It's entirely possible to just throw this quinoa in a rice cooker without worrying too much about washing it. For being both cheaper and less time intensive than other brands, I'll be sticking with this one for the foreseeable future.
