Wild Oats Marketplace Organic Traditional Quinoa

( 6 ratings )Leave a review

Quinoa should be rinsed thoroughly before cooking to remove any powdery residue. Place grain in a fine strainer and hold under cold running water until water runs clear; drain well. Optional: Toast the grain in a dry skillet before cooking to give it a delicious roasted flavor.


2 cups water or broth
1 cup Wild Oats Marketplace™ Organic Quinoa
1. Combine water or broth and quinoa in a medium saucepan.
2. Bring to a boil.
3. Reduce to simmer, cover, and cook until grain is translucent and the germ has spiraled out from each grain.
4. Cook about 15 minutes.


Quinoa is a natural agricultural product. Despite the use of modern cleaning equipment, it is not always possible to remove all foreign materials. Sort, remove foreign material, and rinse before cooking.

    This is a question, not a comment.

    What’s the country of origin of this quinoa? And countries of origin of your other quinoa products? Thank you.

    Can your Traditional Quinoa be prepared in a rice steamer or cooker??

    I have a question about your quinoa. I read an article that said most quinoa is treated with a substances that is extremely toxic to dogs but never listed as an ingredient called saponin. I am trying to find an alternative carb/fiber source for my dog who has many allergies and would like to know if your company uses this.

    I have used this product and others in your line and find them all to be great. I highly recommend them to any one who asks me about them when I am shopping. I am so glad that there is finally an organic option that I can pick up easily at my local grocery store.

      Hi Julie,

      Our quinoa is not treated with saponnin. However, all quinoa has a naturally-occurring thin coat of sapponin. the plants naturally produce this as a defense to keep the birds from eating them in the field. It is the primary reason most people recommend thoroughly rinsing quinoa before using it. The rinsing removes the sapponin. I hope this explanation is helpful.

    Are your organic rices and quinoa’s exposed to heat over 115 degrees farenheit?

    • Chelsea Vurciaga says:

      Hi Cheryl – We do not understand your question. We can assure you that that product is safely made and features high quality organic quinoa. Please write to with more information about your request if that is not your concern. Thanks!

    So in order to avoid saponin consumption, we *do* need to soak or rinse “Wild Oats®” brand quinoa or is “Wild Oats®” brand quinoa pre-rinsed/soaked to remove potentially harmful saponins?

    • Chelsea Vurciaga says:

      Hi Daniel! Quinoa and rice are natural agricultural products. Despite the use of modern cleaning equipment, it is not always possible to remove all foreign materials. Sort, remove foreign material and rinse before cooking Thanks!

  7. Penny says:

    I was so happy to find this quinoa locally! I used to have to travel about 25 miles for organic quinoa and it was much more expensive. I love the tri-color, too! Thank you for making such wonderful products!

  8. Danielle says:

    Great product! Question though, what is the nutritional value of cooked quinoa?

    • Chelsea Vurciaga says:

      Hi Danielle – Since there are multiple ways to cook quinoa, we are only able to provide uncooked nutritional info. Thanks for reaching out!

  9. Martina says:

    This is the best quinoa that my boyfriend and I have found! Problem is, Walmart is ALWAYS out of stock here in Southwest Louisiana. Is there a specific reason for that?

    • Chelsea Vurciaga says:

      Hi Martina! We have been transitioning out of Walmart for some time now. We are working on expanding to new retailers as soon as possible and appreciate your support!
