Kaniwa, also called baby quinoa, has a crunchy texture and a nutty flavor. Packed with nutrients like iron and fibre, it also contains all essential amino acids and is considered a complete protein.
High in fibre
Rich in iron
Imported from Bolivia, locally packaged.
Unlike the quinoa, kaniwa has no saponin. The GoGo Quinoa kaniwa is also prewashed so you can use it without rinsing. If you would like to wash it, make sure you have a sifter with very small holes because the kaniwa grains are very tiny.
Cook 1 cup kaniwa in 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes.
