Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wa”) is not a grain (like wheat, barley or rye). Instead, this seed is only very distantly related to the grains, and is actually a closer relative of spinach, amaranth and rhubarb (also tumbleweed!).
Quinoa has been grown as a food crop in the Andes for over 5000 years. The nutritional composition of quinoa makes it an attractive alternative to wheat; in fact, the proteins in quinoa actually have a more balanced range of amino acids, and include all the essential amino acids required for human nutrition. Quinoa makes a great, mild-tasting side-dish, and offers fiber, folic acid and minerals often lacking in other gluten-free foods that are a critical part of the diet of people with celiac.
