What are the nutritional content and health benefits of quinoa?
It was the United Nations who first declared quinoa a superfood. In 2013 the Food and Agriculture Organization named the year the International Year of Quinoa. The reason has been given this attention is because quinoa is literally a powerhouse of nutrients. Even NASA have put it on their list of food for astronauts during prolonged spaceflights.
Nutritional value of quinoa shows it has a protein content equal to that of milk, which makes it a great plant-based protein source. It is also a great source of calcium and is naturally gluten-free so it is very ideal for people who are gluten and lactose-intolerant.
Dietary fiber, iron, magnesium and phosphorous can also be found in abundance in quinoa. Just a cup of quinoa already contains 5g of fiber, 8g of protein, 19% DV folate, 30% DV magnesium, and 15% DV iron.
What do all these mean? It means, these nutrients all help in the maintenance of healthy heart, teeth, bones, muscles, red blood cells and nerve function. Health benefits of quinoa also includes anti-inflammatory function, aids people in losing weight, controls blood sugar and blood pressure and boosts the body’s immune system.
