This organic white quinoa is proudly grown and processed in Tasmania. Until recently, quinoa has only been grown overseas from places such as Bolivia, Peru and Chile. Naked Foods is excited to be one of the very few suppliers of Australiaā€™s first ever, commercially grown, organic quinoa crop! It has a mild and nutty flavour and has been compared to cous cous in terms of taste and its light and fluffy texture when cooked. It is naturally free from gluten, quick cooking and is a great alternative to rice. No insecticides or pesticides are used during the growing process and no preservatives or additives are used during the processing of the grain.

How to cookĀ  See how to cook this product

Quinoa has a naturally bitter coating called 'saponin' which is the plant's natural defence against insects and birds. Whilst most quinoa is "pre-washed" to remove the saponin, it is still wise to give it a final rinse. Just like rice, the basic ratio for cooking quinoa is one-part dry quinoa to two parts liquid. Using the absorption method, quinoa is cooked in just 15 minutes!
