Know What You Eat: Quinoa "the superfood of universe" is food of high protein quality and is typically regarded as an adequate source of all essential amino acids, including lysine and isoleucine.
Quinoa is a perfect food to include on a gluten-free diet, since it not only lacks gluten but doesn't even belong to the same plant family as wheat, oats, barley, or rye.
Interest in quinoa has recently spread to India and many other Asian countries. Veg. Chinese Fried "Rice" Quinoa is just an inspiration for those taste buds looking for Asian flavor to try this new grain.
Quinoa is generally available in prepackaged containers as well as bulk bins. Whether purchasing quinoa in bulk or in a packaged container, make sure that there is no evidence of moisture. When deciding upon the amount to purchase, remember that quinoa expands during the cooking process to several times its original size. If you cannot find it in your local supermarket, look for it at natural foods stores, which usually carry it. Here is where I purchase in bulk.
