Quinoa (say KEEN-wah) is an incredibly nutritious superfood, high in fibre, protein, and essential minerals like magnesium, potassium, zinc and iron. It is also loaded with antioxidants and has a low glycemic index, meaning that it does not raise blood sugar levels quickly. Cooking quinoa is as simple as cooking rice. It is a great healthy substitute for rice or pasta, and you can even add it to your salads for some extra flavour and energy. We import our quinoa directly from Agro Condor of Peru, where Quinoa was first cultivated 3,000 years ago. Our organic quinoa is produced without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or artificial chemicals.
