The UN named 2013 ‘International Quinoa Year’ in recognition of the crop’s high nutrient content. Quinoa is high in anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, which make it potentially beneficial for human health in the prevention and treatment of disease. Quinoa also contains small amounts of the heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. As a complete protein, quinoa contains all nine essential amino acids a property it shares with animal proteins like meat and eggs but without the saturated fat.

Naturally high in dietary fibre, quinoa is a slowly digested carbohydrate, making it a good low-GI option.

Eat as a portion of starch in a meal instead of pasta or potato, you can also add it to portions of rice, vegetables or sprinkle on salads.
