It is pronounced KEEN-wah. Quinoa is tiny, bead-shaped, with a slightly bitter flavour and firm texture. The Incas have known it all along, for thousands of years regarding it as the 'mother grain' as they grew it high up in the Andes.
Unlike wheat or rice, quinoa is a complete protein - containing all eight of the essential amino acids. It has been recognized by the United Nations as a supercrop for its health benefits: packed with dietary fiber, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. It is also gluten-free and easy to digest.
- Provides a complete protein source - Quinoa contains significantly greater amounts of lysine and isoleucine which most grains lack of.
- Source of antioxidants - Quercetin and Kaempferol.
- Low glycemic index
- High in vitamins & minerals
- Great source of fiber
How to Enjoy:
- Add raisins, cranberries, or other dried fruits to the flakes as they are cooking (about the last 3-5 minutes of cooking time). The fruits will plump and help to sweeten the cereal.
- Sweeten with honey, maple syrup, or your favourite natural sweetener; finish with toasted nuts.
- Mix with dried fruits, nuts, and seeds for homemade granolas, mueslis, or trail mixes.
- Add to muffins, cookies, breads, or other baked goods.
