Our Organic White Quinoa is a naturally gluten free pseudocereal with a light texture when cooked making it a great alternative to rice and cous cous. When compared with red and black quinoa, white quinoa has the lightest and fluffiest texture of all three.
Quinoa is considered a good source of vegetable protein and is rich in vitamins, minerals, and iron. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal, as it is not a member of the true grass family.
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.
