Other Notes

Quinoa was of great nutritional importance in pre-Columbian Andean civilizations, secondary only to the potato. In contemporary times, this crop has become highly appreciated for its nutritional value, as its protein content is very high (18%). Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), and like oats, quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it a complete protein source. It is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron. Quinoa is gluten-free and considered easy to digest.Quinoa was of great nutritional importance in pre-Columbian Andean civilizations, secondary only to the potato.
