Nature’s Glory Organic Quinoa is Heart Healthy, nutrient-rich superfood. They are actually edible seeds but are cooked and eaten like grains. They are an excellent source of dietary fiber. They are also rich in magnesium and folate (Vitamin B9). Quinoa has the best amino acid profile compared to all the grains, with many essential amino acids, including lysine and threonine that are rarely found in cereal grains. They are high in several minerals like iron, manganese, phosphorus, copper and zinc. Quinoa also contain flavonoid-rich, phytonutrients which are powerful antioxidants with anti-inflammatory and immune system benefits.

Quick to cook, ready in just 12 to 15 minutes, use 1 part uncooked quinoa to 2 parts water. When cooked, the wispy germs separate from the seeds and the delicate, yet crunchy curlicues have mild, sweet and nutty flavor.

How to cook
1. Rinse quinoa under running water for at least 30 seconds. Drain well. This helps reduce bitterness on the outside of the quinoa (caused by naturally occurring saponins).
2. Combine the rinsed quinoa and water in a pot and bring mixture to boil over medium-high heat, then decrease the heat to a gentle simmer.
3. Cook about 10 to 20 minutes till the quinoa has absorbed all of the water.
4. Remove pot from heat, cover, and let the quinoa steam for another 5 minutes. Remove the lid and plump up the quinoa with a fork.
5. Season with salt, to taste (optional).

Use Nature’s Glory Organic Quinoa as you would with any rice or grain. It's delicious as an entrée, with beans and vegetables, as hearty cereal, in stuffed vegetables, and in soups, stews, or salads. Quinoa is also great in desserts and puddings.

Leftover cooked quinoa is also delicious in pancakes, waffles, muffins, biscuits, and bread. Quinoa can be freshly ground into flour for any gluten-free bakes. Place 3/4 cup of our Quinoa in a blender and grind for 3 to 5 minutes until it becomes fine flour; it will make about 1 cup flour. Quinoa flour can be used to make delicious wheat-free and gluten-free desserts, pastries, and bakes.

Non-GMO Policy
Genetic Modification of crops is a process of adding genes from other species eg bacteria into plants so that they can produce more yield and be resistant to attack from pests. Insects that take GMO crops die due to the toxins that the GMO plants secrete. The safety to humans is still not conclusive and we are concerned.

Hence, Nature's Glory abides by a non GMO policy when we select our products. Hence, we shy away from products made in the USA including fresh produce unless they are tested for non GMO. (These tests may still be insufficient due to the uncontrolled spread of GMO pollen). The introduction of GMOs in Europe had caused half the bee population to go extinct and hence it was banned in Europe. GMOs are also banned in Japan, NZ and Australia. There have also been an increase in the amount of pesticide and chemicals used on crops after the introduction GMOs. The large increase in chemicals on crops has now become a global threat to our environment
24/7 cool storage
We use advanced climate control systems to keep the organic products in good condition, without using chemicals or preservatives.
No Fumigation
Chemical fumigation quickly kills pests and insects that attack stored food, and are commonly done in most food warehouses. (some fumigated as many as 7-10 times a year!) Fumigation leaves chemical residues on the products which may not be good for health in the long term. Our NASAA audited warehouses are never fumigated even in the event of infestation to keep our food safe. Our cold trucks are also not fumigated for the same reason. Besides keeping our products in a cold, dry environment to reduce such pests, we painstakingly remove any insects found by hand sieving. (These pests are common in organic fields as they are also not sprayed with pesticides.)
Microwave Free
Many foods are irradiated with microwave or high energy pulses to pasteurize and extend the shelf life. We do not do this as these high energy waves do potentially destroy the nutrients of the foods and it's enzymes. We believe that food must have "life" or enzymes and should not be overly processed. This is why our products do not have a long shelf life... but may help extend your life!
Radiation Tested
In recent events of radiation disaster and nuclear arms used in previous wars, the threat of nuclear energy cannot be taken lightly. This is why we have stopped imports from radiation affected areas. However, with the air passages and water currents constantly moving the contamination from one area to another, one can never be sure if the source even from a distant country is safe. This is why Nature's Glory has set out to test every batch of products imported from Japan and USA to ensure that they are not contaminated before they are put for sale. These tests will extend to products from other countries as well.
