PUBLISHED 07/21/13: Quinoa has been touted as a “Superfood” and its popularity has really grown in recent years. So it’s not surprising that Costco now carries the TruRoots Organic Quinoa in the store.
Quinoa is rich in protein, fiber, essential amino acids and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.
The TruRoots Organic Quinoa is:
– Certified Organic

We’ve eaten quinoa but haven’t tried cooking it yet. We’ve heard that you can cook quinoa in a rice cooker. In fact, it seems the suggested ratio of quinoa to water is 1:2 which is the same as for most rice.
The TruRoots Organic Quinoa packaging states that their quinoa supports the livelihood of Andean farmers. This is a product of Bolivia but the quinoa is cleaned and processed in the USA.
The TruRoots Organic Quinoa is available in a 4-lb bag and is priced at $9.79.
Unit price is $2.45/lb or 15.3 cents/oz.
We really need to pick up a bag and make quinoa a regular part of our diet. Have you tried cooking quinoa? Any tips or suggestions?
As an aside, the TruRoots Organic Quinoa was priced at only $7.99 when we saw it in the store in January 2013.
About 2 or 3 months later, the price jumped to $9.79. We’ve read that the demand for quinoa far exceeds the supply and this has contributed to the increased in pricing.
Item number is 363110.
Inventory and pricing at your store may/will vary.
UPDATE Sept 2013: We’ve bought a bag and have cooked our first batch of quinoa! We cooked it in our Aroma rice cooker. It’s just like cooking rice, very easy! 1 cup Quinoa to ~ 1.75 cups water. Use “White Rice” setting.
