What our nutritionist says:
Eating quinoa has become one of the healthy food trends in recent years. Although it is cooked and consumed like a grain, quinoa isn't actually a grain - it is a seed of the goosefoot plant. Quinoa comes in a variety of colours, including white, red, black, and yellow. There are slight differences in taste and texture between them. Thus, you can make your choice according to the attributes you prefer or have a mixture of them for a colourful appearance!
