Muscle Wellness Organic White Quinoa has a high nutrient content and has been heralded as a superior alternative to bulgur wheat, couscous and rice.
Grown in South America (Peru, Chile and Bolivia) for thousands of years, quinoa formed the staple diet of the Incas and their descendants.
Though it often occupies a similar role to these grains in dishes, quinoa is actually in the same family as beets, chard and spinach.
With twice the protein content of rice or barley, quinoa is also a very good source of calcium, magnesium and manganese. It also possesses good levels of several B vitamins, vitamin E and dietary fibre.
Cooked quinoa seeds become fluffy and creamy, yet maintains a slight crunch. It has a delicate and subtly nutty flavor, versatile for breakfast (as a cereal), lunch (as a salad) or dinner (as a side).
Quinoa is among the least allergenic of all the grains, making it a fantastic wheat-free choice. Like buckwheat, quinoa has an excellent amino acid profile, as it contains all nine essential amino acids making it a complete-protein source.
Muscle Wellness Organic White Quinoa is therefore an excellent choice for vegans who may struggle to get enough protein in their diets.
