What is Quinoa? Quinoa (pronounced ‘ki’—‘nwa’) is a member of the grass family – so not a true grain or cereal – and is closely related to spinach. It is grown for its edible seeds and is often mistaken for a grain food. Quinoa has become highly appreciated for its nutritional value, as its protein content is very high (12%–18%). Quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids, making it a complete protein source, which is unusual among plant foods. It is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron. Quinoa is gluten-free and considered easy to digest. You can buy it in the supermarket – try the red quinoa.
