What is Quinoa?

Quinoa (keen-wa), one of the world's most perfect foods, has been consumed for thousands of years in South America. Its small nutritious seeds resemble millet and is very versatile to a variety of cooking styles, inviting seasonings from mild to wild.


Quinoa seeds are naturally coated with a bitter-tasting saponin that protects it from birds and insects. Northern Quinoa Production Corporation has developed a process to remove this coating, making our quinoa ready to cook. This saves the end user from the extensive process of having to wash and rinse the seed.

Quinoa can be enjoyed as a hot breakfast cereal; an infant cereal; a rice replacement; a nutritional thickener for soups, chilli and stew; in salads, casseroles and desserts; and more.
