Quinoa (pronounced keen-wá) is a grain-like seed. It was already cultivated over 5000 years ago in the Andean region of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Chile.
The Quinoa grain comes closer to meeting the genuine protein requirements of the human body than either cow’s milk or soybeans. It is high in the amino acid lysine, which is lacking in most common cereals. Quinoa is not a true cereal grain it can be eaten by people who suffer from cereal grain allergies. Quinoa in its natural state has a saponin coating that has a bitter taste. This has to be removed before eating. Luckily we take care of this process
