Raw vs. Cooked Quinoa
Dry Sprouted Quinoa

As you can see, there is a relatively large difference between the nutrition of cooked and uncooked quinoa. Raw quinoa may contain more nutrients, but it is also more difficult to digest. We would recommend to rinse and cook quinoa before eating. Also, please keep in mind that nutritionals can change depending on brand, farm, country of origin, cooking time, cooking heat, germination length, drying heat, et cetera.
