Quinoa factsQuinoa is a very old staple food of the Inca people in the Andes Mountains in South America. Quinoa was considered by the Incas as sacred food and it was called the 'mother grain'.
Quinoa is a rather small disk shaped grain, which belongs to the Chenopodium family. Quinoa has a pale yellow color but other colours such as red, orange or purple are also possible. The quinoa seeds are covered with a resin-like bitter substance that must be removed to become edible.
Quinoa is becoming very popular because it is gluten free, has a nice taste and is very nutritious. The protein content (14%) is very high for grains. Other nutritional highlights of the quinoa (per 100g) are: 5.9 g fibre, 210 mg magnesium, 60 mg calcium, 9.2 mg iron.
