General Health | Life threatening allergies to nuts and nut products

I am interested in the nutritional benefits of Quinoa, but I have life threatening allergies to nuts and nut products. I would like to know if Quinoa is a nut derivative? Great forum, thanks.

Quinoa is a very nutritious food that comes from a
grain. The edible part are seeds. You shouldn't have
any issues with allergies.
HOWEVER, make sure that you source it organically.
The quinoa in bulk stores can quite often become
cross-contaminated with nut products.
