Buy Organic Quinoa Royal Red / Black / White Online. Similar to amaranth and buckwheat, quinoa (pronounced ‘keen-wah’) fits within the ‘pseudo-cereal’ group as it is not part of the Poaceae botanical family, in which ‘true’ grains belong.
However, It is a small, typically light-coloured round grain (although it also available in other colours including red, purple and black), similar in appearance to sesame seeds.
Therefore, to help ward off insects and birds, quinoa has a bitter residue of saponins, a natural occurring plant-defence.
Like other pseudo-cereals, quinoa contains significant amounts of all the essential amino acids. The Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC) is currently undertaking trials of quinoa in Western Australia. The project aims to select suitable varieties and growing regions to produce quinoa in Australia.

Moreover, Quinoa is a plant native to the Andes, and more precisely the surroundings of Lake Titicaca, between Peru and Bolivia. Quinoa was a staple food of the pre-Columbian populations; it was however replaced by cereals when the Spaniards arrived.
How does barley become malt?
Once the crop is harvested, the seeds will be forced to germinate to produce malted grain. The germination process activates metabolic reactions within the seed that lead to the enzymatic breakdown of the starch into simpler compounds including glucose and maltose. The germinated seed is then dried. The rootlets and germ are separated from the rest of the seed and used for animal feed. The malted grain will be milled and then mashed in hot water. The liquid will then be used for beer production, while the leftover grain (spent grain) can be used for animal feed.
