Organic quinoa is a gluten-free pseudo grain and packed with nutrients like protein, zinc, fiber, and folate, as well as antioxidants.
Unlike most plant-based foods, quinoa is a complete protein, which means it contains all of the essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of the proteins that make up your muscles, bones, skin, and blood. The nine classified as “essential” must be obtained from food daily—your body cannot produce or store them—and quinoa provides all nine.
Quinoa is a great source of fiber. Fiber can prevent or treat constipation and may lower your risk of intestinal cancers. It also helps you feel full longer, so it may help with weight loss. It is rich in antioxidants, which can prevent damage to your heart and other organs. A diet high in antioxidants has been linked with a decreased risk of heart disease.

Quinoa is a great base for salads, as it can soak up dressing without becoming mushy. As a savory side, quinoa makes a lovely bed for grilled veggies. Quinoa flakes can be cooked like instant oatmeal or used in place of quick oats in recipes.
