Quinoa had become very popular over the years. As popular as it has become there are still many people who have either never heard of Quinoa or have never tried it.
Quinoa, pronounced Keen-wah is classified as a grain but technically it is more of a seed and it is packed with nutrients such as protein, B Vitamins, Fiber and loads of minerals.

We like Quinoa because it does not disrupt digestion like most of the other grains and it is gluten free. When you are trying to repair you digestive system Quinoa is the only acceptable grain.
