The 3 Mixed Quinoa consists of 3 colours of Quinoa. Quinoa is known as a super-grain as it has many health benefits. It is rich in complex carbohydrates that slowly digest and keep you satiated for longer while keeping your blood sugar constant.
Being protein rich, it contains all nine essential amino acids required by the body for tissue growth and repair. The uniqueness lies in lysine, a rare amino acid not found in many other grains, which makes protein levels in quinoa comparable to those in milk.
Quinoa is higher in fibre than most other grains, cholesterol free and gluten free. Being nutrient rich, it also contains iron and is high in riboflavin (B2), manganese and magnesium.
Extremely low in fat compared to other grains. Any fat present is mostly healthy fat made up of essential fatty acids such as omega-3 fatty acid that promote further fat burning while keeping you full for much longer.
Higher in nutritional content and a good alternative to rice, couscous or pasta. Equivalent to protein content in milk. The 3 Mixed Quinoa is good for breakfast cereal or a gourmet dinner.
