Undigested Quinoa

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this grosses anyone out, but Im a bit concerned. For lunch I usually eat 4oz of quinoa with various steamed veggies. I've noticed recently that there's a lot of quinoa in my stool. I know it's easy to just shovel that stuff down, but i make sure I chew it sufficiently. What could be the cause of this?


I take 2 Now Foods plant enzymes a day. 1 at lunch and 1 at dinner.

1 Rainbow Light Energizer One Multi Vitamin a day. 1/2 in the morning, and 1/2 at dinner.

1 dropper of liquid chlorophyll once a day

Are you sure that you're cooking it long enough? Under cooked grains are probably a lot harder to digest. Do you rinse it before cooking it? That helps too.

I rinse it very well before cooking. I put it in a mesh strainer, run water over it and scrubs the quinoa together. Im pretty sure I'm cooking it long enough. They open up, and have those white rings around them.
