Once upon a farm, there were three people: a scientist, an agronomist and an accountant. They shared one thing in common – they were all farmers.
So, three farmers have begun growing a superfood under an Australian sun, right here in Narrogin, WA.
Quinoa is a superfood for all the right reasons. Consumed in reasonable portions, it delivers extraordinary nutritional benefits.
It is an exceptional anti-inflammatory. It contains a long list of anti-inflammatory phytonutrients that considerably reduce inflammation related problems.
Quinoa is high in protein (14 grams per 100 grams) – double the amount you’ll find in rice and barley. It’s gluten free. It’s an excellent source of calcium, manganese, and magnesium. It has strong levels of several B vitamins, vitamin E, and dietary fibre.
Quinoa can be used as a cereal for breakfast, a salad for lunch and a side for dinner.
It is among the least allergenic of grains (pseudo-cereal that it is!) and, with all nine essential amino acids on board, is a complete protein source.
It has a low Glycemic Index, and it’s loaded with anti-oxidants. It increases the feeling of fullness (also handy if you’re trying to lose weight!).
The biggest deal about quinoa (and perhaps the main reason it took out the title back in 2013) is its overall nutritional value: specifically brilliant, generally super!
