Viva Naturals, Quinoa - 4 lbs

Viva Naturals limits rinsing and soaking time by carefully removing quinoa’s natural bitter coating known as 'saponins'. Saponins are undesirable waxy, soapy substances that are known to alter flavor and significantly increase preparation time. Traditionally quinoa is mechanically altered to rid the grains of its harsh exterior, removing desirable nutrients such as fiber, vitamins and minerals. Our quinoa is mechanically de-saponized without the use of solvents or harsh chemicals to preserve quinoa’s extensive nutritional properties while elevating taste.

Sourced directly from the reclusive Altiplano region at high Andean plateaus, our Bolivian quinoa is cultivated at soft mountain peaks under optimal sunlight and chilly winds, contributing to its unique characteristics. Once prepared our quinoa lends a smooth, light texture, attributed to the larger size of Altiplano quinoa, that is incredibly soft and pleasant on the palate. Rich in fiber, essential amino acids like lysine, and vitamins and minerals like potassium, iron and magnesium, Viva Naturals Organic Whole Grain Quinoa contributes to a well-balanced diet and is a must-have for your everyday kitchen requirements.

Discover Quinoa

Cultivating the Golden Grain of the Andes

Cherished as the 'Gold of the Incas', warriors in ancient civilizations looked to quinoa for increased stamina and strength in preparation for their battles. Now an ancient South American staple, our quinoa is cultivated from the majestic Andes Mountains where quinoa grows in high flat plains at extreme temperatures, ideal for optimal growth. Our traditional ivory grains are larger in size compared to existing variations of quinoa, lending an incredibly soft texture and delicate mouthfeel once prepared.

Source of Dietary Fiber- As a pseudocereal, Viva Naturals’ quinoa is considered to be a whole grain and is therefore higher in fiber than traditional cereals. Dietary recommendations suggest men and women should consume 38g and 25g of fiber per day, respectively, to help maintain a well-balanced diet. Our quinoa contains 3g of dietary fiber per serving and is consumed for its benefits including promoting satiety and regularity, cutting cravings and regulating blood sugar levels.

Complete Vegetarian Protein- Our quinoa is a complete protein source containing all of the essential amino acids, making it highly suitable for vegetarians who typically follow a plant-based diet. Essential amino acids are those that cannot be made by the body alone and must therefore be obtained through the diet. The U.S. recommended daily allowance (RDA) of protein is 0.8 grams per kilogram of body mass, or about 0.4 grams per pound. Each serving of Viva Naturals Organic Quinoa contains 6g of protein.

Neutral Color and Mild Flavor- Aesthetically similar to rice, quinoa can easily be substituted for brown or white rice without altering the flavor of your favorite dishes. White quinoa is neutral in color and lends a pleasant nutty flavor, pairing nicely as a nutritious side dish or complete well-balanced meal. Even the toughest of food critics will fall in love with our delicious quinoa with its delicate mouthfeel and versatility in any recipe.

Gluten-Free Grain- Quinoa has gained popularity as a nutritious and satisfying gluten-free grain, serving as an excellent replacement to traditional wheat products. While white and brown rice are also gluten-free and suitable alternatives, quinoa lends an unsurpassed nutrition profile with its amino acids, B vitamins, iron, fiber and protein in every serving. For those following a gluten-free diet, our quinoa can be consumed as a breakfast, snack, lunch or dinner, satisfying hunger all throughout the day.

Once prepared our quinoa lends a smooth, light texture, attributed to the larger size of Altiplano quinoa, that is incredibly soft and pleasant on the palate.
