Quinoa has become a superfood very recently about five years back. The abrupt change came as it has extraordinary nutritional benefits with high levels of Omega 3 and antioxidants. Also the presence of protein, fiber and minerals make it really a great food.
Why is Quinoa so popular?
Quinoa also became popular because of the gluten-free boom of the last
decade. However, it is not a grain but its seeds can be made into flour
for pasta or can be used as rice but without the gluten proteins that
are now being avoided by the health conscious individuals.”Quinoa is a
perfect collision of trends,” said Jennifer Baum president of a New York
food and hospitality firm.
