What is quinoa?
Quinoa is a pseudo cereal that grows on the quinoa plant. The small, round seeds were first cultivated in the Andean region of northwestern South America, but over the past 10 years they have gained popularity around the globe as a true superfood. While quinoa is a grain, it differs greatly from other grains as it packs more nutrients and is even gluten free!
