Organic Quinoa pronounced 'keen-wa' is most commonly considered a grain, but it is actually a relative of the leafy green vegetables like spinach and swiss chard. Organic tri-colour quinoa is a balanced combination of white, black and red quinoa. Quinoa was cultivated and eaten by pre-Incan cultures 6000 years ago. The Incas considered it magical because of its high nutritional value calling it 'Chisiya mama' - mother grain. Many health organisations observe that Quinoa is a complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids. 'The Gold of the Incas' is a great choice for people concerned with protein intake as it helps build and repair muscle tissue. Quinoa also features a host of other building nutrients including, manganese, iron, copper, magnesium and phosphorus. This grain has valuable healing properties for people with migraines, headaches and diabetes.
