    Does Quinoa Cause Constipation?

    I've started eating quinoa recently, and it seems to constipate me, even in low quantities. Has anyone else noticed this?

    I think I'm drinking plenty of water.

    I think any grain can cause constipation. Do you eat a fruit or veggie with it?

    Maybe mixing it with a veggie would help

    Quinoa is a highly nutritious source of fiber which should ultimately help prevent constipation, but I agree with PeanutsLucy that any grain can cause constipation initially - the trick is to introduce it into the diet gradually and (as PL says) eat veggies and/or fruit with it.
