Quinoa is originated in South America. It has been cultivated for more than 5000 years. It is eaten as a cereal, but it is botanically the fruit of a plant from the same family as spinach and beet. It therefore falls into the category of pseudo cereal, like buckwheat.
It is very digestible and appreciated for its high nutritional value, as its protein content is very high (12% to 18%). Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete food. It can for example be used as an accompaniment, for the preparation of muesli, soufflés, soups and sweet entremets. There is also a red quinoa and packages giving a mix of red and white quinoa.
Quinoa is free of gluten, as rice, lemillet , le corn, le buckwheat, amaranth. teff. This makes them perfectly digestible for people who are suffering from coeliac disease.
