Did You know: Quinoa is received the name of a superfood with good reason! For starters, this whole-grain is naturally gluten-free. In addition, it is packed with iron, vitamin-B, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, vitamin-E and fibre. However, what makes quinoa truly unbeatable, nutritionally, is that it contains every essential amino acid, unlike other grains, which makes it a complete protein.
