Description

Although quinoa generally gets grouped with grains like oats and barley, it is actually a pseudocereal grain. Meaning that it is basically a seed that’s cooked and eaten similarly to a grain. Examples of pseudocereal grains include brother buckwheat and  cousin amaranth. 

Quinoa contains the following to just name a few:

  • antioxidant and anti-inflammatory plant compounds
  • relatively high protein
  • high in important vitamins & minerals
  • magnesium, potassium, iron, fiber, and folate, a vitamin that’s very important during pregnancy to help fetal growth and development

Various studies have concluded that eating quinoa may benefit:

  • blood sugar regulation
  • fullness
  • body weight
  • triglyceride levels
