Some Information About Quinoa:

What does quinoa taste like?

Quinoa has a very delicate taste, often described as nutty, earthy. Quinoa contains saponins, which are normally removed mechanically prior to being sold, or otherwise need to be carefully rinsed off prior to cooking to remove their bitter taste. Quinoa has an interesting texture that can add crunchiness to almost any recipe. Quinoa can be classified into “bitter” and “sweet” varieties that reflect the saponin
content, which is much lower in the sweet varieties.

 Nutritional qualities: 

Quinoa is a healthy food due to its high nutritional value. What distinguishes quinoa from most other plant foods, except for legumes, is its high protein content. Quinoa contains all the essential amino acids and is also rich in minerals, vitamins, fatty acids and other nutrients.
