Whole grain quinoa blend
Natural source of fiber and protein
High in the Andes mountains of Peru lies the village of Cuzco, the epicenter of the ancient Incan Empire. Then, as today, the "Mother Grain of the Incas"—quinoa (pronounced keen-wa)—is revered here for its incredible nutritional value and wonderfully nutty taste. That taste inspired this amazing Cuzco Whole Grain Blend, which includes long grain brown rice and a mixture of organic herbs and spices. Both stove top and microwave instructions are included on box.
