This Organic White Quinoa is proudly grown and packed on the Daman family farm, on the north-west coast of Tasmania. Until recently, quinoa has only been grown overseas from places such as Bolivia, Peru and Chile. Honest to Goodness is proud to be 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, 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 however, 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 <25c.
