Has anyone with a sesame allergy ever had a problem with Quinoa? From what I understand it is a seed.

Is anyone familiar with the Ancient Harvest Quinoa brand?

Quinoa is a grain. Grains, including wheat, rice, etc. are seeds as well. I think it would be more closely related to those than to sesame seeds.

Quinoa is not considered a cereal grain. It's a fruit, really. It's a chenopod (goosefoot family), as are beets and spinach.
