The Quinoa Recipe To Indulge In
Why Quinoa Is Amazingly Great For You & Your Kids
Quinoa is a great source for Protein, Calcium, Iron. It contains almost perfect balance of all 8 Essential amino acids (“essential” means that humans cannot produce it in the body) needed for tissue development.
Quinoa is high in Lysine and Cystine amino acids which are the building blocks of protein.
