Quinoa originally comes from South America. It is believed that quinoa was cultivated over 6500 years ago. Quinoa is eaten like a grain, but botanically it belongs to the spinach and beet family. It therefore belongs to the category of pseudo-cereals, such as buckwheat.
Quinoa is easy to digest, low in fat and rich in iron and proteins. On average, quinoa contains 16-18% protein and is very rich in amino acids. With a texture similar to caviar and a slightly nutty taste, quinoa is perfect as a side dish or as an ingredient in muesli, desserts and soups.
Quinoa owes its positive properties to a whole range of other ingredients. Lysine and tryptophan, for example. Both are amino acids that are essential for the human body.
