White Quinoa is the most common kind of quinoa available and is sometimes referred to as ivory quinoa. Red Quinoa holds it shape after cooking a bit better than white quinoa, making it suitable for some dishes such as cold salads or other recipes where a distinct grain is especially desirable. Black Quinoa keeps its striking color even when cooked with a earthier and sweeter taste than white quinoa. Regardless of the variety, they all offer high quality nutrition. High in protein and fiber, it gives a longer feeling of fullness.
