A tasty grain packed with protein
Oxtail has a long history of being a rich base for soups, from the depression to today. Serve this savoury bowl of comfort food with a warmed roll and crisp salad on a chilly day for a culinary equivalent of a hug.
Alpiste is more commonly known as Canary seed, a nod to the crop originating in the Canary Islands. This tiny protein-packed grain is gluten-free and versatile as alpiste flour and groats can be used in baking, snacks or in dishes that call for quinoa.
Alpiste's high protein content (21%), coupled with its rich micronutrient composition make it a great functional food ingredient to boost the nutrition profile of traditional and gluten-free foods alike.
Alpiste seed can be used on its own or ground into a high protein, gluten-free whole grain flour. It can be milled into flakes and adds a mild nutty flavour and nutrient boost to extrudates.
