Quinoa the super crop


Another complimentary grain to millet is Quinoa,

unlike wheat or rice, quinoa contains a balanced set of
essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually
complete protein source.

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.
Because of all these characteristics,
Quinoa is being labeled as a super food.
