Kiwi Quinoa has not been polished or processed in any way. It is as it is found in nature. This quinoa has excellent integrity when cooked, higher in protein at 17% (compared with 12-14% in imported quinoa), and has the husk intact. Just like white rice starts out as brown rice, the same is with quinoa, which is why this one is slightly darker -it's the brown rice of quinoa! 400g.
