This amazing 'ancient grain' is naturally gluten free and protein rich. Quinoa is actually a seed not a true 'cereal' grain, nor a grass like rice, so quinoa is grain free. Being a seed it is lower in carbs. Quinoa is from a species of goosefoot, in the Chenopodium family and is closely related to other chenopod's such as beets, spinach, and tumbleweeds. The name is derived from the Spanish spelling of the Quechua name, kinwa. Nature First quinoa flakes are made by simply rolling whole quinoa seeds, making it a 'wholegrain' superfood with an earthy flavour and nutty aroma. Because quinoa seeds are so small this results in a flake similar to instant oatmeal, that cooks like porridge in only 90 seconds.
Quinoa has twice the protein content of rice or barley, and is also a very good source of calcium, magnesium and manganese. It contributes useful levels of several B vitamins, vitamin E and dietary fibre. Cooked quinoa flakes are smooth and creamy. They have a delicate and subtly nutty flavour. A versatile flake for breakfast: cooked into porridge or muffins or even blended into smoothies. Quinoa is among the least allergenic of all the 'grains', making it a fantastic wheat-free choice. Quinoa has an excellent amino acid profile, containing all nine essential amino acids - making it a complete-protein source and an excellent choice for plant based diets, vegan and vegetarian meals.
