Organic Tricolour Quinoa is a balanced combination of white, black and red quinoa. Similar in nutrition, this blend creates a colourful, unique look to your dishes.
Pronounced 'keen-wa', quinoa is technically not a grain, but a seed or pseudo-grain. It is packed with nourishing plant-based goodness - in particular a rich content of dietary fibre and protein.
Great for those avoiding wheat or looking for a rice alternative, quinoa in all its different colours is easy to prepare and super versatile.
No GMO. Preservative and additive free.
Quinoa is a great alternative to rice so use it to accompany stir-frys or meat dishes. It is also great in baking particularly cakes, muffins, porridge and salads.
As it grows, the seed is coated with a dark, almost black layer of 'saponin' that has a bitter, soapy taste. Saponin is the plant's natural defence against insects, birds and other small animals that might want to eat it on the stock. Once harvested, the seeds are removed from the stalk, cleaned of any dirt and bacteria, rinsed to remove the saponin and packaged.
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.
