“With a full range of essential amino acids, fibre & iron, Organax Quinoa Protein Powder boosts energy & aids healthy weigh.Quinoa, pronounced ‘keen-wa’, is a great wheat-free alternative to starchy grains such as rice and couscous. While quinoa is usually considered to be a whole grain (such as rice, wheat and barley), it is actually a seed or ‘pseudo-grain’, which can be prepared like a grain.
Grown in South America (Peru, Chile and Bolivia) for thousands of years, quinoa was an integral part of the diet of Incas and their descendants.
It belongs to the same family as spinach, beetroots and chard and in recent years has been hailed by foodies as a superior alternative to the likes of rice and couscous.
