Product Description

Black Certified Organic Quinoa Royale

Black Quinoa is the least popular of all the quinoa seed colours. This is most likely due to its dark colour as the nutritional content is still the same. In fact, it may be even more nutritionally beneficial than white and red quinoa but it has yet to be proven in studies.

Black quinoa has a very vibrant colour and is used most often in salads and on red meat and fish. Like red, black quinoa is nutty in flavour and maintains its shape well when cooking.

Quinoa (pronounced keen-oa or keenwa) was originally cultivated in the the Andean region of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia. It was domesticated 3-4 thousand years ago and there is evidence of its use stretching back even further. The name Quinoa is derived from the Spanish spelling of the Quechua name kinwa. Its health benefits are such that it is classified a Superfood and has a higher protein content per 100 calories than brown rice, barley, potatoes and millet.

Organic Quinoa Royale is the best quality of quinoa available worldwide. It is grown at high altitudes, generally in Bolivia or Peru. After harvest the seeds are rinsed to remove the bitter tasting saponins. Saponins occur naturally in quinoa and are a natural pesticide, making them unpopular with birds and allowing the seed to grow untouched.

Quinoa’s various forms:

SeedsBlack, Red, White & Tri-Colour
  • White quinoa is the largest seed and therefore expands more when cooked, generally soaking up more liquid. It’s popular in stews and used often as a rice replacement.
  • Red and black quinoa have a slightly nuttier flavour and are used more for their aesthetic qualities and slightly crunchier texture. They holds their shape better than white quinoa when cooked and so are more commonly used in salads where a wholegrain shape is desired. It has been said that red and black quinoa may have more antioxidant properties than white due to their there are no clinical studies to back up this theory.
  • Tri-Colour is a blend of all 3 colours. It is used often in breads and salads for it’s great colour range. Bear in mind the cooking times for the 3 seeds vary slightly, make sure the red and black seeds are cooked through before taking off the stove.

Flakes
  • Quinoa flakes are the rolled quinoa kernal and have similar look and texture to oats
  • Often used as a replacement for oats in baking, breakfast cereals and cooking to thicken sauces..
  • Quinoa flakes may be eaten raw or cooked.

Puffs
  • Quinoa puffs are similar in appearance to rice bubbles and are most often used as a breakfast cereal. They can be made easily from the seeds by putting in a heated pot with a little oil (just like popcorn).

Flour
  • Quinoa flour is used as a healthy, gluten free alternative to regular flour.
