# Quinoa (pronounced as keen-wah) is a tiny, bead-shaped grain, with a light bitter flavour and firm texture. It is circular and flat, with a slight nose protruding out.
# Originally grown on Andes, the world’s longest mountain range and second highest after Himalayas, Quinoa is now gaining popularity across India due to its health benefits.
# Quinoa has protein content between 14%-18%, highest among grains. It is the only plant food with all 10 amino acids essential for humans. It is high on dietary fibre, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. It is gluten-free and easy to digest.
# Quinoa has calorific value greater than that of eggs and milk, and equal to that of meat, making it a perfect substitute food for those who want to go vegan.
# Quinoa can be cooked like rice, as well as like upma, with vegetables. Quinoa grows upto 4 times its size when cooked.
# This Quinoa has been grown by BVG Life Sciences Limited on its own farms in Satara, using BVG Agro Safe and BVG Agrow Magic.
