The Incas referred to quinoa as "The Mother of All Grains," since this superfood has been a nutritional staple for over 5,000 years. Today, quinoa has reached superfood stardom for the range of health benefits that it brings to consumers.
Quinoa contains all nine essential amino acids, making it one of the best sources of plant-based protein on the planet. It is also a rich source of vitamins such as riboflavin, folate, niacin, pantothenic acid, and vitamin E; compared to other grains, quinoa is higher in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, copper, manganese, and zinc than wheat, barley, or corn. Quinoa also acts as a prebiotic that feeds the microflora (good bacteria) in your intestines.
Quinoa is not a grain; it is actually a seed, When cooked, quinoa is light and tastes like a grain, but is easily digested for optimal absorption of nutrients making it an excellent replacement for grains.
