Quinoa meal, here with glutenfree-guarantee, is very digestible and appreciated for its high nutritional value, as its protein content is very high (10,4% to 17%, depending on the variety). 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. This meal of white quinoa has a light nutty taste and can for example be used as ingredient for breads, bakery , soufflés, soups and sweet entremets.
