Organic White Quinoa
Good things come in small packages, and this couldn’t be more true in the case of quinoa (not to mention our amazing Ceres Organics directors Noel, David and Rodnie). Quinoa is one of the most nutritional grains on the planet. Seriously, the science is so good you’d think we made it up! It’s around 15% protein – very high for a plant source. It possesses all the essential amino acids, trace elements, and vitamins essential for maintaining human health. It is a good source of phosphorous, magnesium, and iron. Unlike other cereals, such as rice and wheat, which carry amino acids in the skin, quinoa’s amino acids are located in the core of the grain, where they are best kept safely for your consumption. One of quinoa’s most important amino acids is lysine. It’s vital for the development of brain cells, learning processes, physical growth, memory and reasoning. So, have a quinoa binge before sitting down to swipe left and right on Tinder. NASA identified it as the best food to guarantee nutritional support for astronauts in isolated conditions.

Quinoa is native to South America where it grows in the cool mountain climate. With more than double the amount of protein found in most standard grains, quinoa is an excellent source of phenols which destroy free radicals from the bloodstream. A natural appetite suppressant and high in dietary fibre, this superfood is yielded without the use of synthetic chemicals, pesticides or herbicides. Quinoa is easy to digest and naturally contains no gluten.
Quinoa can be substituted for most cereals and is a great replacement for rice or cous cous, so you can use it accompany stir fries and other meat-free dishes. Make sure to rinse in cold water before use. Before cooking, thoroughly rinse the quinoa. To cook, mix one part quinoa to two parts water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
