Question by Stace: If Quinoa is in your stool did your body actually absorb the nutrients?
Yea, graphic I know, but what gives? I cook the hell out of quinoa after rinsing it and I chew as slow as possible but still THERE it is in the end. Is that how quinoa is supposed be processed? Could the protein and all the good stuff be in the germ spiral that is around each cooked seed? Because it appears that the germ spiral is digested. Anybody know the science behind it? I need the protein from quinoa so that’s why I’m asking.
Answer by marie
weird i eat quinoa all the time and that’s never happened to me – but then every body is different, you may be processing it differently or perhaps intolerant? (although quinoa is pretty bland..i don’t see that happening) sounds like nothing to worry about though.
