These highly nutritious seeds are an extremely rich source of many important nutrients. Vitamins B1, B2 and Folate (B9) work together to ensure optimum digestion, Vitamin B1 is essential to the production of hydrochloric acid – without which we would be unable to digest food consumed. It also exerts a positive effect on the brain and central nervous system – B1 assists the proper development of the myelin sheaths surrounding nerves, improving the body’s ability to withstand stress. B2 is a powerful brain antioxidant, serving as a component of glutathione – an important antioxidant serving in cellular defence, allowing the body to prevent and fight infections and disease. It is also reliant on a plentiful supply of Selenium and Vitamin E to function properly within the body, Quinoa is a source of these two antioxidant nutrients.
Also a fabulous source of many minerals, Quinoa is high in Magnesium – a crucial mineral for overall vibrant health. It is required to give the “spark of life” to metabolic functions including the creation and transport of energy and the creation and synthesis of proteins. It is also high in Phosphorus, the most abundant mineral in the body and essential for strong bones and teeth. Zinc, Copper and Manganese work together to keep the immune system working to optimum capacity, involved in various processes including the production of T-cells – white blood cells that are deployed to fight off foreign invaders in the bloodstream.
Although it is only a source of Protein, Quinoa is one of the few plants that is a complete protein, providing all of the amino acids our bodies cannot make. Meaning “of prime importance” in Greek, proteins participate in every cellular process occurring in the body. They are the main building blocks of the body used to make muscles, tendons, organs and skin. One 50g serving of Quinoa will provide you with around 7g of high quality plant protein.

Qunioa Flakes come from a process of pressing and rolling regular Quinoa seed. All the Qunioa grain/seed comes from certified Organic land and are grown in accordance with strict Organic regulations. Harvest needs to be precisely timed by eye in order for the seed to be at the perfect maturity. Then begins a simple process of threshing and winnowing to remove of the outer husk before the seed is dried. After an initial drying period the Quinoa is washed to remove the pericap (layer containing bitter tasting saponins) before being rolled and pressed to make the seed / grain into Quinoa Flakes. The Organic Quinoa Flakes are then stored and made ready for sale.
There are some reports of people being allergic to Quinoa and it causing stomach upset.
