Available in bulk in two varieties, red and white, it contains all nine essential amino acids and is high in fiber, magnesium, Vitamin-B, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, and Vitamin-E. This ancient grain cooks quickly and can be added to summer salads, savory breakfast oatmeal, paired with chili, or served as a side dish with grilled fish, meat, and veggies.

Buying in Bulk
Buying in bulk doesn’t mean dealing with large quantities. At the co-op, we’re big on bulk because it means buying products with minimal or no packaging. You may bring your own reusable containers to fill. The best part is that it’s easier on the earth and your pocketbook!
Less Food Waste
Research shows that between 25% and 50% of the food Americans purchase ends up in the garbage or compost. Buying in bulk means you can buy only the amount you need – no waste!
Less Packaging Waste
Americans discard 570 million pounds of food packaging each day. By bringing your own containers for bulk foods, you avoid much of the waste associated with packaged products.
Lower Costs, Lower Prices
Without all those packages to design, manufacture and fill, our suppliers can offer us better costs on bulk foods than packaged foods, and we pass those savings on to you.
