Organic Black Quinoa – Certified Organic Black Quinoa is a gluten-free grain that is rich in essential amino acids, vitamin B2, E and A, & contains more iron than any other grain.
Apart from the colour, white quinoa and black quinoa varieties share the same nutritional profile but has slightly different uses due to texture.
Organic quinoa native to south and central America is an ancient Inca staple. Through my travel to South and Central America, I found Bolivia and Peru the largest grower and consumer of this wholesome grain.
Organic White Quinoa Serving Suggestion
From a culinary perspective, organic white quinoa is a much more versatile grain and can be used in any recipe calling for rice. It can also be used in soups, stews and salads and makes a great pilaf.
All grains should be rinsed thoroughly under running water before cooking.
