Quinoa is a flowering plant that belongs to the amaranth family grown for its edible starchy seeds or grains. Quinoa looks quite similar to couscous and is a great substitute for rice and other grains. It is prepared like a grain but is actually a seed that is gluten-free.
Choose quinoa with no moisture. Do not buy in excess quantity as it expands to triple its original size when cooked.
Excessive consumption of quinoa can affect the inner lining of the intestine that can cause leaky gut syndrome.(2)
