Product Description

  • And we reckon it’s the single sexiest thing to come out of the Americas since the naked tango.
    It might be healthy but you wouldn’t know it from the taste
  • It’s that easy
  • Try replacing some of the bread and pasta in your diet with healthy quinoa.

    Complex carbs
  • Quinoa has the good type of carbs
  • But we go further than that as we believe that sustainability is as important as organic certification
  • And getting more vegetable protein in your protein mix can reduce many diseases that have appeared since we went from meat as being a special treat on Sunday to a twice daily intake
  • Not only do we work directly with the producers under the Fairtrade scheme, but we try and help them out in other ways too
  • Almost no other plant can do this
  • No monocultures here.
    We work with ethics in our DNA
  • If you are already a quinoa convert try out a blind test with your existing variety
  • That is why all the farmers practice mixed agriculture and crop rotation, and allow the fragile land to regenerate via fallow periods
  • No risk of a porridgey sludge at the bottom of your saucepan
  • This means that it can replace meat in your diet quite happily, and that if you are vegetarian you no longer need to over indulge in dairy products to get your protein
  • Scientifically that means it has a low Glycemic index (about 35).
  • This is good for you
  • And because it is great cold you can cook up a double batch and save yourself time for a future meal.
    This is Peru’ finest quinoa
  • And all that fibre and lack of gluten will do wonders for your inards.
    No chemical nasties or fossil fuel fertilizers are used in Quinola’s production
  • With a good dose of fibre added into the mix it digests slowly so you will not be hankering after naughty mid day snacks
  • It’s been recognised as a superfood by NASA, who have earmarked quinoa as a key food source for deep space missions
  • And we get our products packed by mentally handicapped people in France, as helping the disadvantaged to a better life through work is something that applies to all countries in our opinion.

    Why Quinoa is considered a superfood:
    ‘While no single food can supply all the essential life sustaining nutrients, quinoa comes as close as any other in the plant and animal kingdom’ (White et al.Agriculture & Food Chemistry 6/55)

    Quinoa is a unique grain because it can give you the same complete proteins that are found in meat and fish
  • (see ‘The China Study’ by Dr Campbell for some pretty conclusive evidence of this and how a safe protein diet will reduce your risk of modern chronic diseases)

    Quinoa is also gluten and cholesterol free
  • Need to get that cholesterol down, or getting bloated from too much gluten? Try a quinoa diet for a few weeks and you will be amazed
  • Discover the three distinctive tastes and textures across our range.
    If you can boil water you can cook Quinola
  • Gluten and cholesterol free it is a complete vegetable protein
  • From a hot side to a cold starter, a soup ingredient to a sweet desert, Quinola will carry your flavours and add its own lovely texture
  • And if you are a bit absent minded we suggest you use a timer (there’s one on your mobile) and just cook for the time indicated on the side of the pack.
    Think of most recipes and Quinola should fit in
  • We are confident that you will switch to Quinola.
    Trust us
  • Quinola contains the good type of carbs, so their slow release makes you feel satiated for longer
