Wellness and quinoa


Round seed from America, it is often called the "Inca rice". Quinoa is a pseudo-cereal since it belongs to the family of chenopodiaceae (same family as that of beetroot and spinach). Quinoa is very digestible, gluten-free but rich in minerals such as phosphorus, magnesium and iron, as well as vitamins. Its protein intake (between 16 to 18%) and its essential amino acid composition allows this seed to be consumed as a single dish. In our diet, it replaces dishes composed of rice, semolina or pasta.
