PriceFrom R17,00

Red quinoa is a variety of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) that has a distinct reddish-brown color. Like other types of quinoa, red quinoa is a gluten-free pseudocereal rich in protein, dietary fiber, vitamins (especially B vitamins), minerals (such as iron and magnesium), and antioxidants.

    • COMPLETE PROTEIN SOURCE— red quinoa contains all nine essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. This supports muscle repair, growth, and overall body function, making it particularly valuable for vegetarians and vegans.

    • HIGH IN DIETARY FIBER— rich in dietary fiber, which aids in digestion, promotes regular bowel movements, and helps in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, supporting heart health.

    • ANTIOXIDANT-RICH— packed with antioxidants like quercetin and kaempferol, which help protect cells from oxidative stress and inflammation, potentially reducing the risk of chronic diseases.

    • MINERAL CONTENT— contains essential minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc, and phosphorus, which are crucial for bone health, oxygen transport, immune function, and energy production.

    • VITAMIN B COMPLEX— provides B vitamins, including folate, riboflavin, and vitamin B6, which are important for energy metabolism, brain health, and red blood cell formation. 

    • LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX— with a low glycemic index, red quinoa helps maintain stable blood sugar levels, making it a good option for managing diabetes and providing sustained energy.

    • ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES— the presence of anti-inflammatory phytonutrients can help reduce inflammation in the body, supporting overall health and potentially mitigating chronic conditions.
