Quinoa

Ceres Organics



  • Quinoa (pronounced ‘keen-wah’) has a truly ancient origin going back to the Inca civilisation. Back then it was revered as the “mother of all grains,” and today it is known as a “super grain” befitting its amazing nutrition profile. It's packed with 14% wholefood protein, and is a fantastic source of dietary fibre. Since it is low GI, it also provides you with long-lasting sustained energy.

    Quinoa is wheat-free, naturally gluten-free, easy to digest and is among the least allergenic foods available. A versatile product, quinoa can be substituted for almost any grain in almost any recipe. It has a light nutty, delicious flavour all its own.

    Available in white, red, or black.
  • You can use these grains in any place where you would normally serve rice, couscous or pasta. Or cook them with plant-based milk for a delicious porridge, and top with fruit, nuts and sweetener or spices of your choice.

    Once opened, store in a sealed container in a cool, dry place and keep away from direct sunlight.
