What is Quinoa?
“Quinoa is an ancient grain that was a staple of the Incas, and contains more protein than any other grain. It’s considered a complete protein, and is also higher in unsaturated fats and lower in carbohydrates than most grains. Quinoa is becoming more available in grocery stores, and you can find it for sure at health food and bulk stores.” Excerpt from Ron Eade’s article in Omnivore’s Ottawa, August 21st, 2009.
