Quinoa and well-being

A round seed originating from America, quinoa is often called the "rice of the Incas". Belonging to the chenopodiaceae family (that of beetroot and spinach), it is very digestible, gluten-free, rich in minerals (phosphorus, magnesium and iron) and vitamins.

In our diet, it replaces dishes consisting of rice, semolina or pasta.
