Join In Coeliac Awareness Week (May 12-18) With Gluten-Free Quinoa From Quinola
One in 100 people in the UK suffers from coeliac disease, and finding tasty gluten-free options isn’t easy. That’s why ready-cooked organic Fairtrade Express Quinoa from Quinola, which was awarded Highly Commended in the Store Cupboard category at the recent Free From Food Awards 2014 (FFFA), is such a good choice.
In trials quinoa has shown to be a safe alternative for coeliacs, and unlike wheat or rice it contains all the essential amino acids your body needs, making it an unusually complete food. Added to that it is a good source of fibre and phosphorus and is high in both magnesium and iron.
Quinola founder James Livingstone-Wallace commented: “With more people than ever coming round to buying, cooking and eating gluten-free, it’s great to be able to offer something that people with coeliac disease and gluten intolerance or sensitivity can enjoy. Whether you eat it in a salad this summer or as an accompaniment to a main meal in place of rice or pasta, it has earnt its place as a storecupboard essential for people who want something quick and tasty but don’t have time to cook from scratch. Just seconds in the microwave or the snip of a packet and it’s ready to go.”
