Certified Organic

Quinoa, pronounced 'keen-wa', originates from the Andes in South America, though our organic Australian quinoa is proudly grown by the Damen Family in Northern Tasmania. 

Quinoa needs to be washed before cooking to remove its bitter flavour, revealing a subtle nutty flavour and a light fluffy texture. It is gluten-free, has a low glycaemic index (G.l. 51) and contains more protein than any grain. It is considered a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids.

our search for the best regional produce

Following a holiday in 2007 to Chile, Bolivia & Peru, Neil & Jane returned very excited about the ‘grain of the gods’ – Quinoa. We thought hard about growing or importing Quinoa but trial crops of Quinoa at Mount Zero failed and championing imported produce (no matter how good) was deemed not a fit with our principles of sustainability and regionalism.

Our principle (or definition) of regionalism, was happily stretched, when we discovered that the Damen Family in Northern Tasmania had pioneered organically grown Australian Quinoa.
