Quinoa originated about 5,000 years ago in the Andean region of Peru and Bolivia. Quinoa isn’t just packed with protein, it provides a lot of vital minerals for healthy diets too.

Quinoa is very high in magnesium; just one cup has about 30% of the recommended daily amount. Potassium, zinc, and iron are also present in this whole grain. Quinoa is gluten free, high in protein, fiber, folate, iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus and manganese.

Quinoa is also great for people on special diets or for those looking for healthy alternatives to wheat or other more common grains, which contain gluten. The fact that quinoa is one of the rare plant-based foods to be a great source of complete protein makes it a perfect staple for any vegetarian or vegan’s pantry. It is an excellent option for people following a high-protein diet, and even for athletes who are looking to widen their food scope.
