Dear clients, the COVID19 epidemic has taken a hard toll (physically and mentally) on myself and on our employees. Online sales have skyrocketted and we have processed more than 10 times the orders we normally ship out since March. We have decided to take a much deserved break. We will resume operations on November 30th. We will still be taking orders and will respond to all emails but all orders will ship out on November 30th. We look forward to be back from our much deserved rest in full force.

Chers clients, l'épidémie de COVID19 a fait des ravages (physiquement et mentalement) sur moi-même et sur nos employés. Les ventes en ligne ont explosé et nous avons traité plus de 10 fois de commandes que nous expédions normalement depuis mars. Nous avons décidé de faire une pause bien méritée. Nous reprendrons les opérations le 30 novembre. Nous prendrons toujours les commandes et répondrons à tous les courriels, mais toutes les commandes seront expédiées le 30 novembre. Nous avons hâte de revenir de notre repos bien mérité en force.

Our organic royal white Bolivian quinoa is one of the world's most popular health foods.

Quinoa is gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain sufficient amounts of all nine essential amino acids.

It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants.

Quinoa was an important crop for the Inca Empire. They referred to it as the "mother of all grains" and believed it to be sacred.

It has been eaten for thousands of years in South America and only recently became a trend food, even reaching superfood status.

 

What is the difference between Royal White Bolivian, White, Red and Black Quinoa?

  • Royal white Bolivian quinoa has the largest and fluffiest grains out of all the quinoa varieties. Other than that it is the same than white quinoa.
  • Red quinoa has a richer taste, slightly chewier and heartier texture, and somewhat nuttier flavor compared to white quinoa. It is preferred when serving in cold dishes as it keeps its shape and does not turn to mush as much as white quinoa. It also takes a couple of more minutes to cook than white quinoa.
  • Black quinoa has more of an earthy flavor than white quinoa and is a tiny bit sweeter. It also takes a couple of more minutes to cook than red quinoa.

 

Why don't you sell tri-color (White, red, black)?

  • Since they all cook at different speeds trying to cook tri-color quinoa will never give optimal results. One will always be overcooked while the other undercooked.


Storage Tips:

  • Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
  • Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
  • Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
  • Mason jars make great storage containers.
  • Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
