Quinoa might be a new and exotic item her, howewer, this isn't so in South America where it has grown for more than 5.000 years in and around the AndesÂ Mountains. The Incas called Quinoa 'the Mother Grain' as eating this food was said to give long life. The seeds are gluten free, which makes this nutritiousÂ and flavourful alternative grain for those with gluten sensitivity. The quinoa seed is high in protein, calcium and iron, a relatively good sorce of vitamin E and several of B vitamins. It contains almost perfect balance of all eight essential amino acids needed for tissue development in humans.
