Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) is a plant in the amaranth family Amaranthaceae, similar to amaranth in terms of nutritional value. Because of its beneficial properties, it used to be called a “golden grain”, “the holy corn of the Incas” or “the mother of all corns” (although not a corn!). Now, it is often referred to as the “super grain of the future”.

Quinoa is a rich source of fibre, protein and vitamin B2 (riboflavin). It is also high in thiamine (vitamin B1) and folic acid, as well as minerals including magnesium, phosphorus, copper, iron, zinc and potassium.

The World Health Organisation recommends eating 20-40g of fibre every day.

Quinoa is delicious, filling and nutritious. It can be well used as a substitute for potatoes, groats, rice and pasta, an ingredient of soups and one-pot dishes or the base for salty or sweet gratins.
