I never found it to be bitter. But I couldn't help thinking it smelled a little bit like fish *yuck*. So maybe I will rinse if from now on. Does anyone know if any nutrients get lost if you rinse it excessively, like it does with enriched rice?Originally posted by dvmarie
Someone here (I think Loki) suggested you put the Quinoa in a pot with water - bring it just to a boil - then strain - and start over. I tried this - and it really gets off that bitter coating.
