Quinoa is a gluten-free seed, high in protein, and one of the few plant foods that contain sufficient amounts of all nine essential amino acids. It is much higher in fiber than most grains. Quinoa contains a large number of flavonoids including quercetin and kaempferol. They are potent plant antioxidants with numerous health benefits. Rich in fiber, minerals, antioxidants, and complete protein, quinoa is one of the healthiest and most nutritious foods on the planet. It may improve your blood sugar and cholesterol levels and even aid weight loss.
White quinoa has the most delicate taste and the lightest texture and it becomes a bit fluffier after being cooked. Red quinoa has a richer taste with a nutty flavor and a slightly chewier texture.
