Let’s clear up something to begin: it’s a seed, not a grain. Given it’s eaten and prepared as a grain, though, it’s commonly referred to as a grain. Technically, it’s a pseudo-cereal. The Inca Empire called it the ‘mother of all grains’ so it’s long received praise as a grain…even though it’s a seed.
Quinoa is high in protein (14 grams per 100 grams) – double the amount you’ll find in rice and barley. It’s gluten free. It’s an excellent source of calcium, manganese, and magnesium. It has strong levels of several B vitamins, vitamin E, and dietary fibre.
Ingredients: Australian grown quinoa grains (100%)
