To cook the grain, we recommend you use twice as much water as Quinoa and cook uncovered until all the water has been absorbed.

frequently Asked Questions
What are essential amino acids?
Amino acids are the components, or “building blocks” of protein and they are needed for vital processes in the body. Our clever bodies can synthesize some amino acids themselves, without the input of amino acids in food. However, some amino acids cannot be made in the body and have to come from the diet. These are called essential amino acids.
