This ready-to-eat cereal boasts superior complete proteins, quality and wholesome nutrition for the whole family. In addition, this cereal is vegan and gluten-free.

Instant Quinoa Cereal is made from whole Quinoa grains which have been cooked, slightly toasted and ‘pressed’. The cereal carries a light, nutty flavor and goes well with any beverage, cereals or morning recipes.

Quinoa means "mother grain" in the Inca language. This ancient seed is a versatile, complete-protein whole grain with all the nine essential amino acids necessary for human growth and development.  Most other grains are deficient in one or more essential amino acids. Quinoa also contains more protein than any other grain.  It was such an important source of nutrients during the Inca civilization that the Incas considered the staple crop sacred. Quinoa is now widely known as one of the healthiest foods on planet earth (contains a balanced profile of amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, fibre, antioxidants, and phytonutrients).

Health Benefits

Health Benefits

Quinoa is a good source of essential amino acids, magnesium, iron, calcium, manganese, copper, phosphorus, and Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), and many other phytonutrients. Here are its health benefits:

1. Anti-inflammatory properties - Reduces risks of cardiovascular disease including atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes. Preliminary animal studies have also shown that daily quinoa intake can lower levels of inflammation in fat (adipose) tissue (associated with obesity), and also lower total cholesterol.

2. Improves migraine as well as hypertension conditions - Quinoa is a good source of magnesium which help relax blood vessels and lower blood pressure. Migraine sufferers are also advised to stay away from artificial sweeteners (like aspartame) and foods containing additives (like MSG).

3. Improves the digestive system  - Quinoa is high in dietary, colon-cleansing fibre. Reduces risk of getting gallstones.

4. Supports weight loss efforts  - Being a low-carb, high-protein whole grain, Quinoa makes you stay full longer on fewer calories. The low glycemic index (GI) and the high quality protein content with all 9 essential amino acids), makes quinoa an excellent choice food for bodybuilders, who want to cut down fat while developing lean muscle.

Nutrition Info

Nutritionists have discovered that Quinoa is low in sugar and starch and high in fibre and unsaturated fats esp. heart-healthy mono-unsaturated fats (such as oleic acid). It contains many essential vitamins and minerals. The experts are most excited about the fact that the amount of protein (12-18%) in quinoa is higher than all other grains (50% more than wheat) and this protein is of superior quality.  Unlike wheat or rice, which are low in essential amino acid lysine (necessary for tissue growth and repair), quinoa contains a balanced set of all the nine essential amino acids, making it an unusually complete food for the human body.

Studies have shown that Quinoa is packed with anti-inflammatory phytonutrients which include a significant concentration of flavonoids — quercetin and kaempferol, small amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids, among others. 

Quinoa is also a good source of phosphorous, calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin E and several of the B vitamins. It is naturally gluten-free, easy to digest and prepare.
