A high protein grain alternative.
A 2009 study at the University of Chile found that 15 percent of the total content of quinoa is protein, more than double the amount found in most standard grains. The study also revealed that quinoa has a complete amino acid profile, meaning that with each serving, you’re giving your body all of the nine key building blocks for making protein.
A natural appetite suppressant
A 2005 study at the University of Milan found that quinoa was effective at controlling appetite and helping study participants consume less food throughout the day. The study goes on to recommend quinoa as a food for dieters due to its high protein and low calorie nutritional profile.
Clearly, quinoa offers many proven nutritional benefits while introducing very little calories and fat to the diet. You can call quinoa a superfood, a miracle seed or any other name you like.
