Wellness and quinoa

Quinoa:

A round seed coming from America, it is often called the "rice of the Incas". Quinoa is a pseudo-cereal since it belongs to the chenopodiaceae family (same family as that of beets and spinach). Quinoa is easily digestible, gluten-free but rich in minerals such as phosphorus, magnesium and iron, as well as vitamins. Its protein intake (between 16 to 18%) and its composition of essential amino acids allows this seed to be eaten as a single dish. In our diet, it replaces dishes consisting of rice, semolina or pasta.
