I bought the exact same product at a chain supermarket, it was no more than 4 dollar, so that led me into thinking that this 10 dollar packet includes at least two packets. NO, it was only ONE and the same as the 4 dollar one I bought in the supermarket. What a rip off! In terms of the quality of the quinoa, they are pretty good and I would recommend it buying somewhere else. This is ridiculous....but it's my own fault of not reading it clearly.

I tried this for the first time last night. WOW! This is great and so easy to use. I listened to others state this grain (any brand) taste bitter. Well, I rinsed mine, made my receipe and my husband and I about fell over it tasted so darn good. This grain, from Ancient Harvest will be in my shopping cart many times over.

Best tasting on the market. Turns out perfectly cooked every time. Prewashed so you don't have to rinse which is awkward since it catches in the fine sieve. After cooking a bit of garlic, scallions, pepper, sea salt and olive oil makes it divine. I add a chopped fresh jalapeño too. Toss in feta if you do dairy. Enjoy

Ancient Harvest is the best tasting quinoa we have found. Love that it is organic and gluten-free. Our dogs also love the taste. We have three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and they get a small bowl of this mixed with pureed peas for lunch. They get beef too (with dinner), but I like to keep their diet varied.

I was not aware that Quinoa needs rinsed before cooking or it is a little bitter. Glad this come pre-washed, but be sure to rinse a couple times (as you would do rice). It's very good with a little dab of butter and a sunny-side up egg served over the top for a quick, easy, nutritious and protein-packed meal.

Great quinoa ... try roasting the quinoa before adding water and boiling, I heat it up until they start to pop ... great nutty taste when roasted/heated beforehand.
