The quinoa used in all Viva Quinoa's products is a highly nutritious seed with one of the highest quality protein contents in the vegetable kingdom: 14% by mass. Its protein content per 100 calories is higher than brown rice, potatoes, maize, barley and millet.
Our quinoa has been called a "supergrain" for good reason: it contains all 9 essential amino acids required by the human body to build muscle. It is a great source of magnesium, which helps relax muscles and blood vessels; fiber, which facilitates digestion; manganese and copper, great antioxidants for fighting cancer and other disease-causing substances.
It is also higher in calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, and zinc than barley, wheat or corn.
Last but not least, our quinoa is GMO free and gluten-free; safe for those with gluten intolerance and people with celiac disease.
