    Information on Quinoa
    Additional information can be found at Quonfused About Quinoa

    The following Passover alert is from the Chicago Rabbinical Council on March 22, 2011.
    The cRc approves the use of whole grain quinoa for Pesach on the following conditions:

    Ancient Harvest is one of the brands that only imports quinoa from Bolivia; there may be others. The label should state the country of origin. This is done by spreading one layer of quinoa at a time on a board or plate and checked to be sure that there are no other grains or foreign matter mixed in with the quinoa.
    This does not apply to Quinoa flour which is not permitted on Passover.

    Ed. note: White Trader Joes's Quinoa (Star-K) is also acceptable when checked and purchased before Passover.



    The following Passover alert is from the Star-K on February 16, 2011.

    "As a result of a recent investigation, we have found it possible that quinoa's kosher for Passover status is compromised when it grows or is processed in the proximity of certain crops.
    Therefore, Quinoa will only be accepted with reliable Kosher for Passover supervision."
