Quinoa

Quinoa, is a gluten-free “pseudo-cereal” native to the Andes mountains regions of South America and has been a valuable superfood since around 3000 BC. It’s said that the Incas referred to quinoa as “mother of all grains.” Quinoa is well known for its highly nutritious elements including: monounsaturated fat (oleic acid), omega-3 fatty acid (a-linoleic acid), antioxidant phytonutrients, manganese, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, zinc, copper, selenium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, E, soluble fiber. These nutrients have been linked to various health benefits such as: reducing diabetes risk, lowering cholesterol, reducing blood pressure, helping weight loss.
