Our Organic Black Quinoa is naturally gluten free, a great source of vegetable protein, and is rich in vitamins, minerals and iron. It is excellent to use as an alternative in recipes that call for rice or cous cous, so if you’ve never cooked with quinoa before it’s very easy to incorporate into your diet.
Compared with white quinoa, black quinoa has a slightly crunchier texture, a bit more of an earthy flavour and is slightly sweeter. It has an overall stronger flavour profile and also has double the amount of fibre, whilst packing slightly less fat. Black quinoa also has a thicker shell so it tends to hold its shape better, and is great in cold recipes such as salads.
Visually, the black quinoa offers a nice contrast to lighter coloured food and is a great addition to your meal!
We also sell organic quinoa flakes which are excellent for porridge, cereals and smoothies, see listing here. We also sell quinoa flour for baking.
Add to salads, stews, casseroles, soups and desserts (such as this quinoa berry dessert here) or bake into lovely gluten-free treats, see our recipe section for inspiration.
It is recommended to rinse before use.
