HOUSTON, March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Riviana Foods Inc., America's leading rice company, announced today the launch of Success® Tri-Color 100 percent Quinoa, which is packaged in the same boil-in-bag as the other products in the Success product line. This Success product is an easy-to-prepare, quick cooking quinoa and offers consumers a protein-rich option that can be served as a mealtime mainstay or integrated into a variety of recipes.

This versatile product is also gluten free, 100 percent whole grain, a good source of fiber and a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids.
"Quinoa is one of the world's most popular health foods, and much like rice, its versatility shines in any meal," said Paul Galvani, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Riviana Foods Inc. "We're mainstreaming quinoa and are pleased to offer home cooks a convenient shortcut that can be incorporated in a variety of dishes from appetizers to desserts. Any favorite family recipe gets an added punch of protein with the addition of Success Quinoa."
Chefs at Riviana's test kitchen developed an assortment of recipes showcasing inventive and deliciously satisfying ways to incorporate the new Success Quinoa into different meal occasions. For example, boost the flavor of this versatile grain by cooking the boil-in-bag in fruit juice, broth or milk to create sweet, savory and nutritious dishes the whole family will enjoy. It's also a great staple to prepare at the start of the week that's easy to integrate into salads, soups, puddings and side dishes.
