What

Organic White Quinoa, pronounced “keen-wa”, is a nutritious and versatile grain-like seed. 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 product at any stage.

Served Best

Quinoa is a great alternative to rice so use it to accompany stir-fries or meat dishes. It is a quick-cooking ingredient that is perfect for salads, can be used in baking and can even be served as porridge.

How To Cook

Quinoa has a naturally bitter coating called 'saponin' which is the plant's natural defense 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!

Benefits

Quinoa is a gluten-free grain that is rich in essential amino acids, vitamin B2, E, and A, & contains more iron than any other grain. Quinoa is one of the only known grains that provide all the essential amino acids needed by the human body.

What is the difference between RED Quinoa, and WHITE Quinoa?

Apart from the colour, red and white quinoa are very similar and can be used in the same recipes. Red quinoa has a slightly more fibrous texture and is a little crunchier once cooked. It will take about the same time to cook both types of quinoa. This is the same with black quinoa.
