A great wheat-free alternative to starchy grains, quinoa is a protein powerhouse. With twice the protein content of rice or barley, quinoa is a very high source of calcium and magnesium as well. It also possesses good levels of several B vitamins, vitamin E and dietary fibre. It contains all nine essential amino acids making it a complete protein source. Quinoa is, therefore, an excellent choice for vegans.
The UN named 2013 ‘International Quinoa Year’ in recognition of the crop’s high nutrient content. It has a delicate and subtly nutty flavour, versatile for breakfast (as a cereal), lunch (as a salad) or dinner (as a side).
