  • Nutritional Information

    Contains protein, vitamins A, B6, E, calcium, iron, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, and potassium. Not only is quinoa high in protein, but the protein it supplies is complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids. Quinoa's amino acid profile well balanced, making it a good choice for vegans concerned about adequate protein intake, but quinoa is especially well-endowed with the amino acid lysine, which is essential for tissue growth and repair.

Fun Protein

  • By: JDCHT Verified Buyer from Ottawa, ON CA on March 3, 2016
  • Pros: The Appearance
  • Cons: The first batch was a little bitter but that was quickly absorbed by the other flavours in a salad or raw burrito.
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

These were more colourful that I expected - since white quinoa is so bland looking. In three days you can have potent vegan protein on hand. Can't beat the convenience there. Also, they lasted for a few days in the fridge where I thought they might quickly wilt. I decided to rinse my second batch the way I would when preparing quinoa like a grain. They turned out less bitter rinsed so I would recommend that.
