01. nutritional value

There are more than 3.000 varieties or ecotypes of quinoa.
The consumption of quinoa goes back thousands of years. In fact, it were the incas, living in South-America who discovered its high nutritional value. They even called quinoa “the mother of grains”. However, technically quinoa is a seed. Quinoa is rich in protein, full of vitamins, low in fat and is gluten-free. Moreover, the protein quality is very high thanks to the digestibility and quantity of essential amino acids. Quinoa has a low glycemic index which means it is easily digestible. Perfect for all food lovers and a worthy replacement for rice and couscous. Check the nutritional values of quinoa compared to rice, wheat, soybean, amaranth, spelt and other grains.
Ayacucho is a region in Peru known for its top quality quinoa: excellent taste, large grains and beautiful colors. This quinoa is very easy to use in many applications and has a great hydration capacity. Moreover, we always use the same varieties enabling a stable quality.

They can be used in breakfast cereals, energy bars, drinks, purées, pies, cakes, etc. Our flakes guarantee a high intake of protein, amino acids and minerals. You'll fall in love at the first bite.
