Ingredients Organic white, red and black quinoa seed
Common uses Add 1 part quinoa to 2 parts water or stock, bring to the boil then cover and simmer for 15 mins. Once cooked a tiny white spiral appears encircling the grain. It is a great alternative to rice so use it to accompany soups, stews, stir-frys, meat dishes or salads
Nutritional Aspects Macronutrients Quinoa (20) contains less carbohydrate (64g/100g) than other grains, mostly in the form of starches with some dietary fibre (7g/100g). It contains a much higher fat content at 6g/100g (mainly n-6 PUFAs) and a similar protein content at 14g/100g in dried seed. What is interesting, however, is that quinoa contains all 9 essential amino acids - the only other plant food that contains all 9 essential amino acids is soy.Micronutrients: Key micronutrients found in significant levels in quinoa include manganese, phosphorous, copper, iron, folate, and magnesium, with smaller amounts of thaimin (B1), vitamin B6 and zinc.
