Product Talk: Quinoa


When going through the grain section of the grocery store, you may see a seed like grain; that is quinoa. Quinoa comes in three different colors, light yellow, red and black.

Quinoa is a quick cooking grain and only takes 15 minutes to cook. One cup of cooked quinoa has 222 calories, 4 grams of fat, 39 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of fiber, and 8 grams of protein. One of quinoa’s benefits is that it has a higher amount of protein and fiber compared to most grains, which makes it excellent for vegetarians.
