Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) and other ancient grains, such as amaranth, barley, and farro are rapidly growing in popularity because of their wide array of health benefits.
Ancient grains are referred to as such because they have remained largely unchanged for hundreds or even thousands of years. Quinoa was known to the Incas as “the mother of all grains” and was first cultivated over 5,000 years ago. There are hundreds of cultivated types of quinoa, but the most common versions available in stores are white, red, and black quinoa.
Quinoa, in dry and cooked forms.
Quinoa is often considered a whole grain as the whole grain seed is eaten without any parts being removed.
Botanically, quinoa is not classified as a grain. It is a pseudo-cereal. This means it is a non-grassy plant used in much the same way as cereals and grains with a similar nutritional profile.
The seeds of pseudo-cereals can be milled and ground into flour just as other grains and cereals.
However, nutritionally, quinoa is considered a whole grain. Whole grains include the entire intact grain seed without removing any of its parts.
In contrast, when grains are milled or refined like white bread, white rice, and white pasta, they have been processed to create a finer, lighter texture. This process removes most of the fiber and important nutrients.
Whole grains, such as quinoa, provide essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber. These help regulate the digestive system and keep you fuller and more satisfied.
It Is A Complete Protein
It is one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids – these are the amino acids that our bodies cannot produce and, therefore, need to consume.
This makes quinoa a great dietary choice for vegetarians and vegans.

The high fiber content of quinoa may help to improve blood sugar control.
Because of Quinoa’s high fiber content compared with other grains, it helps reduce the risk of a number of health conditions.
These conditions include constipation, heart disease (by lowering blood pressure and reducing cholesterol), and hemorrhoids.
High-fiber diets have been shown to help improve blood sugar control. This can be beneficial for individuals with diabetes or prediabetes.
Also, diets rich in fiber tend to promote a healthy weight because fiber helps you feel fuller for longer, potentially reducing the overall intake of food.
Quinoa provides a higher amount of antioxidants than other common grains used in a gluten-free diet. Most gluten-free products consist of corn, rice, or potato flour and lack the nutrients that products incorporating quinoa can provide.
Researchers at Columbia University’s Celiac Disease Center found that the nutritional content of gluten-free diets was significantly improved by adding oats or quinoa to meals and snacks.
There are new studies emerging on a regular basis confirming the health benefits of adequate whole grain intake and their antioxidant capacity.
Quinoa And Manganese
One cup of cooked quinoa contains almost one-third of the recommended daily allowance of manganese. Manganese is essential for development, metabolism, and the antioxidant system. This element is also vital for the proper functioning of many enzymes.
Quinoa Iron Content
Iron is necessary for a range of processes in the human body. For instance, it is an essential component of hemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in our blood. Maintaining adequate levels of iron is essential for health.
Lysine is important for the synthesis of proteins. Although deficiency is rare, it can cause a range of medical issues because it is so widely used in the body. Quinoa contains more lysine than any other grain.
B-2 In Quinoa
One cup contains around 10 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin B-2 (riboflavin). B-2 is essential for the proper functioning of a range of enzymes.
There is some evidence that riboflavin might help reduce some types of migraine headache.
Although rare in Western countries, B-2 deficiency can cause oily skin rashes, anemia, and itchy, red, sensitive eyes.
