The collection includes three different quinoas; red, black and white, and the range hails from the slopes of the Andes in Peru and Bolivia.

Quinoa is a delicious and healthy alternative to rice and cous cous. A versatile form of protein, it is high in fibre and rich in amino acids. The three new quinoas from Good Deli Company have been handpicked by their expert team of buyers, Chief Executive Simon Bell comments:

This new and exciting range of quinoas have been chosen for their ability to deliver nutritional value, quality and provenance at a cost effective price. Perfect on their own or presented as a tricolore of quinoa, the vibrancy and superior flavour of these grains delivers a premium offering for operators. ”

The first in the range is a popular white quinoa, providing a slightly nutty taste it is the softest textured of the three and is perfect for creating beautiful salads.

The second is a vibrant red quinoa, a slightly stronger grain, it holds its shape beautifully, looks sensational on the plate due to its bold colour and is very quick to cook.

The final quinoa in the range is a black quinoa. Still providing that traditional nutty taste it is the sweetest quinoa in the collection bringing a stronger and slightly earthy taste to the table whilst retaining its stunning deep black shade.

The high quality grains provide a distinctive premium taste for a vast range of dishes from meat to salads.

All three of the new quinoa’s provide food-service operators easy to cook premium ingredients with outstanding provenance at a great price.
