Quinoa is regarded as a ‘superfood’ partly because it has plenty of fibre and good quality protein, especially useful in a vegetarian/vegan diet. It is rich in magnesium and has more calcium per gram than milk. Other vital minerals include manganese, iron and copper.
Magnesium is scarce in many people’s diet. Consuming quinoa regularly could help those low in magnesium with problems such as migraine headaches, cramps, some digestive problems, restlessness, etc. Adequate magnesium helps prevent type-2 diabetes and benefits those who already have it. It is important for those doing high-intensity exercise for extended periods, being an essential electrolyte and vital for muscle relaxation and the healthy functioning of nerve cells.
Quinoa is a versatile grain for use in soups, casseroles, salads, burgers, or as a high-protein breakfast porridge (great with walnuts!)
