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.

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.
