ABOUT QUINOA

Although it is often classified as a grain, quinoa is actually a member of the same of the same plant family as spinach. While the green leafy quinoa tops are edible, it’s the seeds that are served most frequently.

A NUTRIENT POWERHOUSE

The tiny quinoa seeds are packed with important nutrients; a one cup serving provides about 4 mg of iron, more than any unfortified grain product. One cup also contributes large amounts of several other essential minerals, including 90 mg of magnesium, 175 mg of phosphorus, 315 mg of potassium, and 1.5 mg of zinc, as well as numerous B vitamins, especially B6, folate, niacin, and thiamine.

Most of the 160 calories in one cup of cooked quinoa come from complex carbohydrates. However, it also provides 7 gram of protein, which is of a higher quality than similar products because it provides lysine, an amino acid missing in corn, wheat, and other grains. Quinoa is a good source of saponins, phytochemicals that helps to prevent cancer and heart disease.

A VERSATILE FOOD

Quinoa cooks quickly into a fluffy, delicately flavored grain like dish that lends itself to many uses.It can be served as a substitute for rice, potatoes, and other starchy foods; combined with vegetables, poultry, or seafood to make a pilaf; and added to soups and stews.
