Quinoa is easily digested and naturally contains no gluten. Quinoa is also a great source of dietary fiber, magnesium, phosphorous and iron. Rich in fiber, minerals and antioxidants, quinoa is one of the healthiest and most nutritious foods on the entire planet.
You can even make quinoa flour by simply grinding the seeds into a flour.
