The Kinowa burger is the exponent of the La vie est belle philosophy. A tasty burger full of healthy nutrients and nearly exclusively made out of local foods. But what makes these ingredients so special to brand them as Superfoods? Allow us to guide you through the ingredient list and introduce you in the world of Superfoods.
The main ingredient of the latest La vie est belle product is quinoa, a South American type of grain indigenous to the Andes. Quinoa has become very popular over the years. The reason for this rise in popularity is the fact that quinoa does not contain any gluten and is rich in vitamins and minerals. Thanks to its healthy characteristics the demand for the product in Europe has grown exponentially over the years.
The quinoa we use in our burgers, comes from Marc Verhofstede’s farm in the province of West-Flanders. This organic farmer from Zulte spotted the potential of growing Flanders’ quinoa early. After a few years of experimenting and doing research he officially started of his project in 2015. An extra asset is the fact that the crop offers unique opportunities for rotating several crops during the year.
La vie est belle choses deliberately to work closely with Marc’s farm. We believe that a direct link with the farmer is the best guarantee for us to get access to local produce of the highest quality, at a fair price for both La vie est belle and the farmer.
