Locally Grown Quinoa Seeds

Locally grown, non-bitter quinoa forms the basis of our innovative quinoa ingredient portfolio. We use new quinoa varieties developed by the Wageningen University & Research which have a low saponin content (<0.11%). Because of this, no polishing and washing steps are needed, preventing a loss of nutrients. The low saponin quinoa is cultivated without pesticides and is purified with high-end optical technology.
