Organic White Quinoa

From: £2.99

(£2.99 inc. VAT)



Organic White Quinoa is a seed that works like a grain.

Organic White Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is softer and more absorbent than red or black quinoa varieties.  Organic quinoa is a source of protein so is a popular choice with vegans and vegetarians.  It contains all the essential amino acids needed for human nutrition.

Quinoa is a ‘pseudo-grain’ which means that although we use it as a grain it is actually a seed.   This means it is higher in nutrients and protein than most grains.  Cooked quinoa is a source of Folate, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Copper and Manganese (per 90g serving).

Our organic quinoa hails from Bolivia and is grown in the Andean Mountains where it has been a staple food for thousands of years. It works well in a wide range of sweet and savoury recipes.

We also stock organic red quinoa and organic black quinoa.  If you want to try all three then choose our organic tricolor quinoa.
