How is this quinoa different from others?

Majority quinoa have a bitter layer of saponin and thus need to be washed several times before using. They also have small seed size (take longer to cook) and are more white in colour (lesser nutrient content). This quinoa is pre-washed and saponin free which makes it incredibly easy to use. It is packed with oxygen absorber to increase freshness (in 5 kg pack) and has 18g protein per 100g of quinoa. Seed size is bigger and cook-time is lesser. It is produced in India, has a grey shade and is better in nutrient content compared to imported quinoa.
