Quinoa Sprouts

$9.55 Lb.

A 6,000 year old (pseudo) grain which was a sacred staple of the Inca diet, Quinoa produces super nutritious sprouts very quickly.


Note: Quinoa contains a relatively high concentration of saponins, which are a natural occurring compound. Saponins may result in an allergic reaction - including feeling ill. For most of us all they do is make the water sudsy and a bit thick which can make sprouting less easy, but please be aware that Quinoa Sprouts are not for everyone.


Our Quinoa comes from a source which is certified organic.

About

Quinoa (Keen-wah) is an ancient pseudograin which originated in the Andes region of South America, where our seed comes from even today. Quinoa has been cultivated for 6000 years. It was a staple of the Inca diet, and they considered it sacred. Quinoa is the only sprout which contains every single amino-acid. It is another one of the quickest sprouts, prefering to soak for only 30 minutes and showing roots - sometimes within 24 hours. It is very beautiful as well as nutritious. Like its relative, Amaranth, it has a mild beet-like (they too are related) flavor, though it's also nutty.

Flavor
Light and crunchy with a mild flavor of beet. Wonderful in salads or as a carbohydrate-substitute side dish. Add olive oil!
