Quinoa very digestible and appreciated for its high nutritional value with very high protein content (10,4% to 17%, depending on the variety) and no gluten. 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.
