The first organic, commercially grown Quinoa crop in Australia. Grown by the Damen family on the North-West coast of Tasmania. It's packed with protein and other nutrients, with a nutty, sweet flavour and a long shelf life.

This ancient grain contains more protein than any other grain, with a good balance of all 8 essential amino acids, making it a good choice for vegetarians. Quinoa is also high in fibre and has a low-GI, beneficial for keeping blood sugar levels stable. Quinoa is an ideal grain for diabetics.

Quinoa is one of the most nutrient rich grains and a good source of iron, needed to transport oxygen around the body, B vitamins for energy, calcium and magnesium for healthy nervous system function, and vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant.

Quinoa is delicious cold tossed through a salad, or hot served with a stir-fry, stew or casserole. You can use quiona similar to how you use rice. Also try adding it to soups, frittatas or vegie patties. Makes a great taboulli.

Grown and processed on Tommeginne Country - Kidred, Tasmania
