Organic Tricolour Quinoa 500g
Quinoa is a seed from a weed-like plant known as “Goosefoot” which is closely related to beets and spinach. It was firstly discovered thousands of years ago in south America by the Incas empire who referred to it as the “mother grain” as it was founded in Andres which is one of the worlds longest mountains. The grain is high in protein a with a mild, nutty flavour and has fluffy consistency hence why it is often used as a substitute for wheat or rice. Quinoa has a variety of nutritional benefits such as being gluten-free, high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants.
Tricolour Quinoa is a combination of the 3 main varieties of quinoa which are red, black and white. The white quinoa provides a lighter taste and appears more fluffier than the other two types.
