Organic White Quinoa
Organic White Quinoa by Hatton Hill Organic. Organically grown, harvested and dried in Bolivia. Packed in the UK.
White quinoa, like its red and black cousins, is a naturally gluten-free seed used like a whole grain – like rice or couscous – in cooking. All three varieties are native to South America and were a staple food of the ancient Incas. Quinoa is hugely popular among vegetarians and vegans, but in recent years has burst into the mainstream as a superfood for all.
PURE, PREMIUM PRODUCT: Hatton Hill Organic’s white quinoa is grown and harvested in Bolivia, one of the areas in which it was first cultivated at least 5,000 years ago. Its flavour lacks the slight bitterness characteristic of red quinoa and contrasts with the earthier, slightly sweeter taste of black quinoa.
USES: The mildest tasting of all quinoa varieties, Hatton Hill Organic’s white quinoa can be used almost any dish in which you can use rice or couscous, thanks to its light, fluffy texture. It’s also great in salads – from green, leafy mixes through coleslaws and more exotic creations, and can take the place of red or black quinoa in soups, stews, gratins, pilafs, burgers and more, with attention to the shorter cooking time it requires.
MOTHER GRAIN: Named chisiya mama (mother grain) in the Quechua language of the Andes, quinoa has a rich nutritional profile.
