The RAW Truth
Well for Life


This “super food” is easy to prepare and oh so good for you. Quinoa has the highest protein content of any grain, which along with its fiber content, leaves your tummy feeling fuller longer. It has a low glycemic index, making it a good choice for those who must watch their blood sugar or are on a weight loss program. 


Naturally gluten free, it can be cooked quickly and used as a side dish or in soups and stews. It's also delicious cold with flax milk and cinnamon sugar for a gluten free, dairy free nutrition-packed breakfast or snack.

Tru Roots Accents Sprouted Quinoa Trio has some added health benefits too!  The process of sprouting activates natural enzymes and actually boosts the nutritional value and vitamin content in the grain. Sprouting also makes it easier for the body to digest.

Although you can choose to cook these grains, you can also enjoy them as a raw food. Raw foods are gaining popularity because of their great nutritional value and enzymatic activity. Sprouted grains and lentils can easily be rehydrated by soaking them to soften the grain and then used as fresh raw sprouts in sandwiches, salads and other foods.

So go ahead and try this versatile, nutrition packed grain.  You will love it in all its forms!
