Widely regarded as a 'Superfood', quinoa has rapidly risen to the very top as one of the healthiest foods in the world.
Quinoa was once held as sacred to ancient civilisations, being referred to as 'chisoya mama' or 'The mother grain' as it was used to feed hungry armies. In modern times quinoa is once again being revered for its excellent levels of protein, fibre and minerals, as well as being low in glycemic index (GI), which has led to the crops resurgence within the healthy eating sector. This has led to the replacement of many previously staple food stuffs such as rice, couscous and pasta with our more nutritious quinoa grains.
Growing trends towards gluten-free foods has also ensured demand for quinoa continues to grow, and our range of grains, flakes, flour and puffs are the perfect choice for new product development within this sector.
Not all quinoa is the same, and ours has some very special properties that make it all the more unique!
Despite common belief, the vast majority of quinoa grown around the world is not able to be classified as 'wholegrain'. However we don't polish our grains to aesthetically whiten them, preferring instead to keep the thin layer of bran on the outer part of the grain to help retain the full nutritional profile, making it practically the quinoa equivalent of brown rice.
Furthermore, our quinoa is often regarded as some of the best tasting in the world. By keeping it as a genuinely wholegrain product, we retain a much richer and deeper nutty flavour, helping our quinoa to really punch above its weight in any dish.
