So, what is quinoas?

Quinoa, also known as the "mother of all grains," is a nutrient-dense, gluten-free superfood that has been a staple in the Andean region of South America for centuries. This versatile ingredient is actually a seed that's cooked and eaten like a grain. It's a complete protein, packed with all nine essential amino acids, and is also a good source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Quinoa comes in a variety of colors, including red, black, and white, and has a slightly nutty flavor and fluffy texture when cooked. It's a great addition to salads, stir-fries, and grain bowls, and can even be used as a substitute for rice or pasta.

How to quickly find the source of ingredients like quinoas?

We've built a database of 49359 ingredients (and growing), classified as "vegan", "non-vegan", or "maybe vegan".

We use it in our vegan ingredients scanner, which is the best way to avoid non-vegan ingredients - you take a picture of a product's ingredient list, and the app tells you if the product is vegan or not.
