Quinoa Cereal...

Quinoa is a highly nutritious food from South America that was once considered "the gold of the Incas". The Incas of South America considered it sacred and used it in their rituals. They referred to it as ‘chisaya mama’ or mother of all grains, with the Inca emperor sowing the first seeds of the season using 'golden implements’. Quinoa is higher in amino acids and protein and can be easily substituted for almost any grain, as it is gluten free. The coating of the saponin gives it a bitter taste, so it needs to be washed away before cooking. Rich in proteins, iron, calcium and potassium, copper, and potassium, it helps prevent type2 diabetes, childhood asthma, heart diseases, gallstones and migraines. With this article, we will help you explore the benefits of this wonderful seed, quinoa.
