needs more time to prep

i've been using a different brand of quinoa, but when i can't find that brand here in manila, i decided to try this one. at first look, it seems fine. But when i cooked it, that's when i noticed some small clear rocks (like rock salt but bigger). it's not edible. it's like cracking my teeth when i bite it (it's really clear so it's not noticeable all the time). i hope it gets some more QA before packing the product.

Good, but sandy

My husband and I decided to start eating healthier, which means actually paying attention to our macronutrient intake. The problem for him is getting enough protein in his diet while still staying within his calorie limit. Quinoa was a good option because it works as a rice or pasta substitute and has a decent amount of protein. We had never tried quinoa before, but it was fairly easy to make. This bag lasted us about 2-3 meals. While it looks like rice, you actually cook it more like pasta. It has a really strong wood smell when you first open the bag and, this is really important, you have to wash it really REALLY well. I washed it the way you wash rice and the bitter wood smell went away, BUT I guess I didn't wash it well enough because there were giant grains of sand in the food! We thought they were rocks (like rice) or uncooked quinoa at first, but when I fished one out, it was a clear crystal about the size of a grain of rock salt. They were really disturbing to bite into and, because they're clear, you can't just get them out like you do with rocks/husks. That said, I'm up for trying it again. The problem really is getting the big grains out, since they're so big they wouldn't go through a strainer.
