What's the Difference Between Red and White Quinoa?

I cook quinoa pretty frequently, using it in grain bowls or in salads. I've been increasingly enamored of red quinoa, which looks really gorgeous in salads, and which seems to hold its shape just a little bit better than the more commonly-found white quinoa. I became curious: was there any real difference between these two colors, or their third exotic sibling, black quinoa? I decided to ask a couple experts.
