Pronounced keen-wah, or ke-NO-ah, this nutritional powerhouse is considered a pseudo-seed because you cook it just like a grain. The Incas called quinoa the “mother of all grains,” and even had spiritual connections to them and they had celebrations during the planting and harvest seasons. Quinoa flour is creating by grinding quinoa seeds into an ultra-fine powder.
Quinoa is gluten-free, full of protein, includes all nine essential amino acids, high in fiber content, rich in iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, vitamins B, C and E.
