Cultivated for over 5000 years, quinoa was a dietary staple of the ancient Incas who called it the "mother-grain." To the Incas, quinoa was more than a food. It was also currency and medicine. Its mystical properties were revered. The Incas believed quinoa gave life-supporting and healing gifts to their people. Modern science reveals that quinoa contains a full complement of amino acids and is higher in protein and lower in carbohydrates than cereal grains. A good source of iron, magnesium, and B vitamins, including folate, quinoa is also a notable vegetarian source of lysine, the amino acid that supports tissue growth and repair.
