Kindred Organic Australian White Quinoa is proudly grown and packed on the Daman family farm on the northwest coast of Tasmania. Quinoa is often only grown overseas, and Honest to Goodness is proud to have been one of the first suppliers of Australia's first-ever, commercially-grown organic quinoa crop!
Organic Quinoa, pronounced 'keen-wa,' is a gluten-free grain that is rich in essential amino acids, vitamins B2, E and A and 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.
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 25C.
No GMO. Preservative and additive free.
Quinoa should 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.
No insecticides or pesticides are used during the growing process and no preservatives or additives are used during the processing of the grain.
