The Incas referred to quinoa as “The Mother of All Grains,” since this superfood has been a nutritional staple for over 5,000 years. Today, quinoa has reached superfood stardom for the range of health benefits that it brings to consumers.
Quinoa contains all nine essential amino acids, making it one of the best sources of plant-based protein on the planet. It is also a rich source of vitamins such as riboflavin, folate, niacin, pantothenic acid, and vitamin E; compared to other grains, quinoa is higher in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, copper, manganese, and zinc than wheat, barley, or corn. Quinoa also acts as a prebiotic that feeds the microflora (good bacteria) in your intestines.
Many people are starting to use quinoa as a replacement to refined white flour, even though quinoa is not truly a grain. That’s why we’ve combined quinoa with organic white flour. Skip the refined carbohydrates and enjoy the benefits fo quinoa in our Real Organic Quinoa White Flour.

Main Ingredients and Functions
Protein – Quinoa is one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat. It has an impressive amount of protein, and is considered one of the most viable sources of plant-based protein. It is a complete protein containing all nine essential amino acids.
Fibre – Quinoa contains almost twice as much fibre as most other grains. Fibre is most widely known to relieve constipation. It also helps to prevent heart disease by reducing high blood pressure and diabetes. Fibre lowers cholesterol and glucose levels. It may lower your risk of developing hemorrhoids and it could also help you to lose weight. Since it takes a longer time to chew quinoa than does other foods, it makes your body feel full for a longer period of time. It is less “energy dense” which means it has fewer calories for the same volume of food.
Iron – Iron helps keep our red blood cells healthy and is the basis for hemoglobin formation. Iron carries oxygen from one cell to another and supplies oxygen to our muscles to aid in their contraction. Iron also increases brain function since the brain uses about 20% of our oxygen and blood supply in the body. There are many benefits of iron, some of which include neurotransmitter synthesis, regulation of body temperature, along with aiding enzyme activity and energy metabolism.
Lysine – Quinoa contains lysine. Lysine is mainly essential for repairing and promoting the growth of tissue.
Magnesium – Quinoa is rich in magnesium. Magnesium helps to relax blood vessels and thereby alleviates migraines. Magnesium also may reduce Type 2 diabetes by promoting healthy blood sugar control. Other health benefits of magnesium include transmission of nerve impulses, body temperature regulation, detoxification, energy production, and the formation of healthy bones and teeth.
Riboflavin – Quinoa is high in Riboflavin (B2). Vitamin B2 improves energy metabolism within brain and muscle cells and is known to help create proper energy production in cells.
Manganese – Quinoa has a high content of manganese. Manganese is an antioxidant, which helps to prevent mitochondria damage during energy production as well as to protect red blood cells and other cells from injury by free radicals.
