White Quinoa - 300g

Pronounced keen-wah, the quinoa plant is a relative of leafy green vegetables like Swiss chard. Native to South America, it was once considered the Gold of the Incas because its high protein content was said to give warriors strength and stamina. Quinoa is considered a complete protein as it provides all 9 essential amino acids. Rich in magnesium, iron, phosphorous and various other phytonutrients, it is claimed that quinoa may help with migraines, be good for the heart, and may help reduce the risk of diabetes. Being naturally gluten free, it is a terrific substitute for people who are wheat intolerant. Quinoa grain has a mild, nutty flavour and a creamy, slightly crunchy texture.
