Our Quinoa

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.


White Quinoa

Our white quinoa is a staple in both salad and ambient grain ranges, where it is often used for the grains excellent nutritional value and unique texture.

Grown to our own high specification and processed in modern BRC Grade AA facilities, you can trust that our quinoa is among the best quality in the world.

Organic White Quinoa

Our organic white quinoa is perfect for use in ambient grain ranges and further processing, where a truly sustainable product is essential.

Certified by Organic Farmers and Growers (OF&G) and traceable back to individual farms, we process all of our organic quinoa within modern BRC accredited facilities.

Smoked Quinoa

These grains have been traditionally wood smoked, providing a distinctive flavour that’s perfect for use within prepared salads, especially to complement Mexican and Moroccan flavours.

Created by slowly smoking our quinoa for 48 hours using a mixture of oak, ash and beech, to provide an aroma that’s perfectly sweet and balanced.

Quinoa Flakes

Our quinoa flakes are an excellent choice for inclusion within a wide range of baked goods. They are perfect for appealing to the health-conscious consumer, and work well partnered with oats.

We make our flakes by firstly gently steaming our quinoa grains, before they are flaked and then toasted to create a large flake with a delicate flavour.

Quinoa Flour

Our quinoa flour is suitable for use within a wide range of baked and extruded goods, being gluten free and with a light neutral flavour. 

We fully cook our quinoa grains to denature any degrading enzymes which would otherwise effect the flavour, prior to milling to the desired fine particle size.

Quinoa Puffs

Our light and fluffy quinoa puffs are ready to eat, perfect for adding into products where no further cooking is essential.

Created by applying heat and pressure to our grains, this causes the air inside to expand rapidly and ‘puff’ the grain. We utilise a modern BRC accredited facility to create this product.

Cooked Quinoa

Cooked and ready for inclusion into prepared salad ranges, the perfect alternative to rice, couscous and pasta. 

Our manufacturing partners are able to provide MAP packed and IQF versions to suit specific requirements.

Peruvian Red Quinoa

Perfect for adding colour and contrast to grain mixes, these red quinoa grains can be easily blended to create a speckled effect.

We planted our first crop of British red quinoa back in 2017 and are gradually working to replace all our imported red quinoa with our own British version as soon as we can.

Peruvian Black Quinoa

Similar to the red quinoa, our black quinoa is great for blending with other grains for creating an interesting visual effect.

In terms of nutritional benefits, there's no difference between the black and red quinoa grains, it's purely a difference in the natural skin colour between them.
