Quinoa is a gluten free seed originating from South America. One of the most impressive things about this seed is that it is a complete protein, meaning that it contains all 20 of the amino acids that your body requires for everyday functioning. It’s also packed with fibre, making it a very satiating food. Evidence shows that regular consumption of quinoa may aid in weight loss. This is partly because the protein and fibre content keep you feeling full for longer, but also because it contains significant amounts of manganese which is an essential mineral for making digestive enzymes to help you utilise your food for energy more effectively.
