Quinoa

Quinoa is the grain from a natural plant of the same name. It is not a cereal, since it belongs to the same family as chard, beet root and spinach. However, it is used as if it was a cereal (or rice in different recipes) to cook bread and pastries as well as to replace other vegetable cereals.

Benefits of Quinoa

  • Quinoa is gluten free, which is why it can be eaten by those who suffer celiac disease
  • Due to its high fiber content, quinoa has a low glycemic index, which means that it can be used by diabetic people. Due to the same reason, it can be used for weight loss diets.
  • It is one of the bio products that helps to treat constipation naturally thanks to its high fiber content
  • Its high protein content is suitable for vegetarian diets

Tips and use of Quinoa

We suggest boiling the quinoa seeds before cooking, as if they were rice. Cook them for 20 minutes, strain them and you will be able to use them in any recipe to take advantage of all its benefits.

When it comes to cooking, Quinoa flakes are a good complement for your breakfast due to its high protein content, since it can be combined with juices, milk, water or yogurt.

You can also use quinoa flour to cook many different dishes. With wheat flour and some water you will be able to make: bread, biscuits, crepes, cakes or desserts in general. Moreover, quinoa can replace other products (like rice) in some common recipes. Quinoa can also be used to make delicious and healthy salads.

Purchase Quinoa

You can buy quinoa at herbalist's shops and specialized stores. You will be able to find high quality quinoa products from different brands at the HSN online store, always at the best price in the market. It is available not only as seeds, but also as biscuits or cakes which are a perfect snack between meals.
