Question: What is the difference between white, black and red quinoa?
Answer: Quinoa grows in a rainbow of colors, but the most commonly available are red, black, and white quinoa. Taste and nutrition are similar among the colors. White quinoa tends to cook up fluffier, while red quinoa and black quinoa have a crunchier texture and the grains don’t stick together as much.
