Quinoa Grain Red Organic (Box) 300g
Pronounced 'keen-wah', this amazing 'ancient grain' is naturally gluten free and protein rich. Quinoa is actually a seed not a true 'cereal' grain, nor a grass like rice, so quinoa is grain free. Being a seed it is lower in carbs. Quinoa is from a species of goosefoot, in the Chenopodium family and is closely related to other chenopod's such as beets, spinach, and tumbleweeds. The name is derived from the Spanish spelling of the Quechua name, kinwa. Nature First red quinoa has a natural rouge hue and multi-coloured look when cooked and it's white tails emerge.
Nature First Organic Quinoa Flakes are sourced from South America and packed in Australia.
Quinoa has twice the protein content of rice or barley, and is also a very good source of calcium, magnesium and manganese. It contributes useful levels of several B vitamins, vitamin E and dietary fibre. Cooked quinoa seeds become fluffy and creamy, yet maintains a slight crunch. It has a delicate and subtly nutty flavour, versatile for breakfast (as a cereal), lunch (as a salad) or dinner (as a side). Quinoa is among the least allergenic of all the 'grains', making it a fantastic wheat-free choice. Quinoa has an excellent amino acid profile, containing all nine essential amino acids - making it a complete-protein source and an excellent choice for plant based diets, vegan and vegetarian meals.
