Description

  • Great substitute for rice
  • A good source of protein and fibre
  • Without allergens (dairy, wheat, soya, dried fruit or eggs)

Known by ancient Incas as “the mother of all grains” Quinoa (together with buckwheat and amaranth) is one of the few vegetable sources that provide a complete complex of essential amino acids. Quinoa is a seed, but it can be consumed as a cereal, and is also known as a 'pseudocereal'.

Living Now ™ Organic Quinoa by Now Foods provides a great supply of complex carbohydrates, but is also rich in proteins, as 100g of this food can provide up to 16g of proteins and around 6g of fat in the same amount of food. It is very high in fibre and therefore favours good and healthy intestinal transit. It is ideal for people with diabetes or those wanting to slim by eating healthily.

It is also of great help for controlling cholesterol levels in the blood, as its fibre and unsaturated lipids improve the body’s lipid profile. It is also very rich in micronutrients, of note potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, iron and zinc, vitamin B and vitamin E with antioxidant function. Quinoa is particularly beneficial for coeliacs as it contains no gluten.

Living Now ™ Organic Quinoa is a good replacement for rice in recipes, and is often used in soups, stews and casseroles. It can be sprinkled on your favourite salad to provide an extra burst of flavour and nutrition! It has a mild, delicate flavour, similar to walnut, and is therefore a very popular addition to many vegetarian recipes.
