A revered crop since the Incas, Quinoa is one of natures most nourishing superfoods. Native to the Andean regions of Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador, this ancient seed is a nutrient dense, gluten-free alternative to grains. Although referred to as the mother of all grains according to the Incas, it is technically not classified as a true grain or cereal from the grass family, but is related to foods such as spinach and beets. Sprouted Quinoa is not only an incredibly nutritious superfood, it is delicious to eat and easy to digest. The sprouting process improves digestibility and allows for a greater absorption of nutrients. Enzyme inhibitors are eliminated and anti-nutritive compounds such as phytic acid are reduced. The sprouting process increases vitamins and minerals in Quinoa providing greater bio-available nutrition when compared to non-sprouted Quinoa. Low temperature air-drying ensures that the vital enzymes and nutrients stay in tact. The result is the most digestible, nourishing superfood that will keep you satisfied and strong. One 50 gram serving size provides 7 grams of protein, along with Fiber and Iron. Sprouted Quinoa is an indispensible superfood for those on a gluten-free diet and is a fast and simple way to enhance your daily diet with an extra boost of dense superfood nutrition.
