Also known as the “Gold of the Incas,” quinoa is a nutritional powerhouse that offers a wide array of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Quinoa was highly valued by their ancient warriors who appreciated its ability to augment their energy in times of need, such as before a battle.

The Incan Empire believed quinoa to be a sacred food and even referred to it as “chisaya mama,” which translates to “mother of all grains.” While it is commonly known as an ancient whole grain food, quinoa is actually the flat, oval seed of the Chenopodium quinoa plant, a close relative of spinach and chard. Technically speaking, quinoa is a pseudo-cereal because it doesn’t grow on grass but is prepared and eaten just like rice and other whole grains. It is also naturally loaded with protein, fiber and other nutrients.
Considered by many to be the world’s most ancient superfood, this remarkable dietary staple is a nutritional powerhouse that offers a wide array of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals as well. Unlike most grains, it also contains all the essential amino acids, making it a perfect addition to a wide variety of diets. Plus, it naturally contains no gluten and has a low glycemic index. With the Health Ranger Store, you can now get ultra-clean, lab-verified organic quinoa in red and white varieties.
WHITE QUINOA VS. RED QUINOA**
Quinoa comes in a variety of colors, with red and white quinoa being the two most popular types. While both have similar nutritional profiles, red quinoa has slightly more dietary fiber, calcium and potassium. On the other hand, white quinoa contains just a little bit more protein and iron. The smooth, light flavor of white quinoa won’t overpower the taste of other ingredients in most recipes, which makes white quinoa ideal for quinoa casseroles, patties and smoothies. Cooked white quinoa resembles white rice in appearance and has a light and fluffy texture. As for red quinoa, which contains a stronger flavor as well as a firmer and crunchier texture, it is commonly used in salads. Red quinoa may take slightly longer to cook than its white counterpart but you’ll end up with a delicious superfood comparable to brown rice.
WHAT NUTRIENTS CAN YOU GET FROM QUINOA?
High in healthy fats and low in carbs, quinoa contains a good amount of fiber and other essential nutrients such as manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and folate. Like buckwheat, this superfood is a complete protein with all nine essential amino acids. A cup of quinoa can give you more than 200 calories of energy. It does not contain gluten, so it is an excellent source of energy for those who want to keep gluten out of their diet.
Two important plant compounds that can be found in quinoa are quercetin and kaempferol. These are antioxidant flavonoids that help protect your body from the harmful effects of free radicals and promote your overall health.
