To help consumers put a healthy twist on homemade sushi, Top Tier Foods has developed sushi-grad quinoa. Though the idea of replacing rice with quinoa may sound unusual, the specially formulated grain boasts a distinctly sticky texture that makes it perfect for making maki of any kind.
Unlike regular quinoa, which is loose and crumbly, Top Tier Foods has developed a Canadian Golden Quinoa that mimics the sticky texture of short rice grains. Despite the similar texture, the sushi-grade quinoa is richer in protein, iron, and other micronutrients than white rice. As a result, the product is likely to appeal to health-conscious home cooks who are trying to up the nutritional value of their favorite Japanese dishes.
