How to Check Quinoa (Star-K)
Place quinoa (no more than 16oz at a time) in a strainer with holes small enough that it won’t fall through, ideally #15-25 size mesh.
Shake the quinoa over a white paper or lightbox for approx. 25-30 seconds
Check the surface of the paper or lightbox for insects. If any insects are found, the quinoa should not be used.

The AKC recommends that AKC members discard the old AKC Kosher Symbols Card
The New Kosher Symbols Card has Several new reliable symbols and some of the old symbols have been removed as they are no longer in use.
