Quinoa is gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids. It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B-vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants.
The health effects of real foods go way beyond the vitamins and minerals we’re all familiar with.There are thousands of trace nutrients in there, some of which are extremely healthy.This includes interesting molecules called flavonoids, which are plant antioxidants that have been shown to have all sorts of beneficial effects on health.
Two flavonoids that have been particularly well studied are quercetin and kaempferol, and they happen to be found in large amounts in quinoa.In fact, the quercetin content of quinoa is even higher than typical high-quercetin foods like cranberries .
By including quinoa in your diet, you will significantly increase your total intake of these (and other) important nutrients.
Keep in Cool & Dry Place.
