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.
Ancient Harvest Quinoa is nutfree, peanutfree, sesame free according to the email I received from them...thanks for the reference!
I am allergic to tree nuts and sesame seeds but I am fine eating Quinoi (so far).
