Made by drying, cleaning, and then toasting quinoa until it puffs, puffed quinoa is ready to eat without any further preparation. It has a crunchy texture and a toasted flavor.
Quinoa is an ancient food, originally from the Andes region of South America, which is becoming more and more popular in the US because it is naturally gluten free and very nutritious.
With exceptionally high protein levels (12%-18%), lots of vitamin E, and a wide variety of essential amino acids, quinoa is an ideal choice for vegetarians, vegans, and those on restrictive diets. It is easy to digest and high in fiber, iron, and magnesium.
Store puffed quinoa in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.
