Description

Doves Farm have been specialists in organic and gluten free flour since 1978, located at their farm near Hungerford on the Wiltshire/Berkshire border. In addition to great tasting bread flours, they make a variety of organic and gluten free products including, biscuits, cookies, cereal bars, breakfast cereals, pasta & baking requisites, drawing the majority of these and many raw materials from the local Wessex area. Doves Farm are dedicated to upholding organic, ethical and Fairtrade agricultural systems, nurturing partnerships with suppliers and customers and supporting local community projects, and have had Soil Association approval since they were founded. Gluten and wheat free cookies are produced in a separate bakery using the traditional wire-cut method and baked on specially lined trays.


Gluten Free Fairtrade, Organic Fig & Qunioa cookies combined with plump ripe figs and quinoa to create the distinctive flavour this treat delivers. They are made using artisan methods in our dedicated gluten free bakery, where everything that goes into the mixing bowl is on the ingredient list. The palm oil is responsibly sourced from sustainable organic farms in Colombia, which work to protect the eco system. We do not use genetically modified ingredients, controversial additives or hydrogenated fat.


Quinoa is closely related to species such as beetroots and spinach and was first domesticated by the Andean peoples around 3,000 years ago. Quinoa has been an important staple in the Andean cultures where the plant is indigenous but relatively obscure in the rest of the world. The Incas, who held the crop to be sacred, referred to quinoa as chisaya mama or "mother of all grains", and it was the Inca emperor who would traditionally sow the first seeds of the season using "golden implements". During the Spanish conquest of South America, the Spanish colonists scorned quinoa as "food for Indians", and even actively suppressed its cultivation, due to its status within indigenous religious ceremonies. In fact, the conquistadores forbade quinoa cultivation for a time and the Incas were forced to grow wheat instead.


Quinoa has been called a superfood. Quinoa's protein content per 100 calories is higher than brown rice, potatoes, barley and millet. Nutritional evaluations of quinoa indicate that it is a source of complete protein. Furthermore, it is a good source of dietary fibre and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron. Quinoa is also a source of calcium, and thus is useful for vegans and those who are lactose intolerant.
