Quinoa Mix with wheatberries, red rice,
greenwheat, black barley and quinoa.
Quinoa is a great source of protein with an
amino acid profile that is as good as meat.
Not only that but it's also packed with
calcium, B vitamins, iron and essential
fatty acids. Merchant Gourmet's Spelt
is firm in texture and has a nutty flavour.
Spelt is a versatile wheat and is higher
than wheat in nutrients such as vitamin
B1, vitamin B2 and iron. it's quite carb-y
at 40g per 125g serving
The rest of the range includes: Red
and White Quinoa; Puy Lentils (24g per
125g serving); and Beluga Lentils. All
are either ready to eat out of the pack or
with just a couple of minutes cooking in a
microwave. They cost around £1.99 per
back from many supermarkets.
Sainsburys, Morrisons and Co-op

Eat pouches which retail at £2.30. These
