Overview

What is Organic White Quinoa?

Quinoa is actually a seed but is enjoyed like a grain. Knowing this, it’s clear why it is so nutritious. It is an ancient food first cultivated in Bolivia and has been eaten for thousands of years as part of a nutritious diet. Pronounced “keen-wa”, this grain is hugely popular because of its taste, versatility and rich nutritional profile.

Quinoa is a relative of Swiss chard, spinach and beetroot with a pleasantly firm bite and fresh, nutty flavour which goes well with a wide range of other ingredients. It’s easy to prepare and cooks in around 15 minutes. It’s great in smoothies, salads and porridges as well as a wholesome side to our protein packed meat or as a meal in itself thanks to the impressive 12.3g of protein per 100g. This nutritional powerhouse has a light nutty flavour and firm bite and makes delicious porridge and salads as well as being a filling meal in itself or perfect partner to our meat products.

What are the benefits of Organic White Quinoa?

Quinoa is a satisfying and delicious carb replacement that is completely gluten free so it can also be enjoyed by anyone with a gluten intolerance. It’s a complete plant based protein containing all nine essential amino acids necessary for good health, growth and muscle repair. These nutrients can’t be produced in the body so it’s essential you get them from your food. It’s very rare for any ‘grain’ to contain all nine.

As well as being rich in essential amino acids, Quinoa is a good source of healthy carbohydrates for energy as well as a valuable source of fibre which is vital for good digestive health. In addition, Quinoa also provides iron, vitamin B2, E and A. The flavonoids Quercetin and Kaempferol are found in Quinoa which are thought to provide anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-carcinogenic and even potentially benefit mood.

How good is your Organic White Quinoa?

Quinoa is considered to be so nutritious that NASA have selected to send it into space as part of astronauts’ diets. There are three types of Quinoa – red, black and white - and all are equally nutritious. This white quinoa is chosen for its purity and quick cooking time so it’s easy to whip up after a workout.

It’s best to rinse all grains thoroughly under running water before cooking. Store your Quinoa in a dry, airtight container at <25°C. On the plant, Quinoa is coated with a dark layer of 'saponin'. When harvested, the seeds are removed from the stalk, thoroughly cleaned and rinsed to remove the saponin and packaged. Our Quinoa is fully organic so 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.

As with all our ingredients you can have total confidence in our product quality and supply chain. Our Quinoa is sourced from a leading UK supplier and is subject to our stringent quality checks before entering our production-line and ultimately arriving at your door. It is supplied in a resealable container so it should keep fresh for a minimum of six months.
