Quinoa is an edible seed that has become increasingly popular among health-conscious people. It’s loaded with many important nutrients and is one of the world’s most popular health foods.


Here are some health benefits of quinoa:

Very Nutritious: it contains protein, fiber, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, vitamins B1, B2, B6, B3 (niacin) and vitamin E.

Quinoa is naturally gluten-free. Using it instead of typical gluten-free ingredients can increase the antioxidant and nutrient value of your diet when you’re avoiding gluten.

It has a low glycemic index, which is good for blood sugar control.

While not directly a health benefit, the fact that quinoa is very easy to incorporate into your diet is nonetheless important. It’s also tasty and goes well with many foods.


It has beneficial effects on metabolic health.

Quinoa appears to be very high in antioxidants. Sprouting increases their antioxidant levels even further.
