High and mighty! Red Quinoa is grown on the edge of the Bolivian Salt Flats, at an altitude of about 12,000 feet.
As the name suggests, our Organic Red Quinoa consists entirely of red seeds. This is a lovely alternative to the regular white seeds as it adds intense visual interest and colour to your meals. Red Quinoa has a stronger taste, similar to lentils, and can be bitter if not thoroughly rinsed. It also tends to stay firmer when cooked, producing a crunchier and more textured product.

- + Health Benefits
As well as being gluten-free and low GI, quinoa is also an excellent source of protein, fibre and many essential vitamins and minerals. One serving of quinoa (approximately half a cup uncooked) provides over half of your daily-recommended intake of magnesium for healthy bones, and selenium for a healthy immune system. Quinoa is also a good source of iron and zinc. One serving of this super food offers a significant amount of folate, a mineral vital for healthy cell growth and red blood cells. Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, is also plentiful in quinoa.
- + How to use
Red Quinoa can be enjoyed as a hot breakfast cereal, topped with honey, nuts or berries. You can also include it in soups, stews and pilafs. Because of its slightly nutty flavour, Red Quinoa is also great added to breads, muffins, cookies and pancakes.
