Earthly Choice QuinoaBristol Farms is really excited to bring you Earthly Choice Quinoa; a highly nutritious, exotic, great tasting food from South America. Quinoa is gaining popularity in the United States and offers all the nutritional benefits of animal protein without the fat and calories. The grain has a nutty flavor that is richer in flavor than couscous and it cooks in 15 minutes.

Quinoa contains all 8 amino acids, the protein building blocks that our bodies can’t make but must get from our food. Quinoa has on average 13 % protein compared to rice at 9%. Quinoa is an excellent source of fiber, containing both soluble and non-soluble fiber. It is high in a wide variety of vitamins and minerals, like iron, manganese, magnesium,  and phosphorus. It is also gluten free.

Take yourself down our rice aisle and pick up a 14oz bag of this cleverly packaged grain and find out what all the excitement is about quinoa!!!!   An exceptional good for you side dish.
