Organic Quinoa pronounced 'keen-wa' 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.

All grains should be rinsed thoroughly under running water before cooking, and any dirt or foreign matter that has made its way to you from the farm should be removed. Store in a dry, airtight container at <25°C.

Most quinoa (including ours) has already been rinsed prior to use to remove the coating but should still be rinsed in a fine strainer under cold running water until the water runs clear to remove any residual residue or dirt.

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.


Quinoa is native to South America where it grows well in a cool mountain climate. The quinoa plant is a relative of beets, spinach and Swiss chard, but we treat its seeds as we would a grain, preparing and eating them in much the same way.

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.
