The nutritional attributes of quinoa are very unique. In addition to the overall nutrient density of this pseudo grain, and its absence of common protein allergens (gliadin and other forms of gluten) found in most cereals, it is an exceptionally rich source of antioxidants typically only found in vegetables and berries. The flavonoids quercetin and kaempferol are especially concentrated in quinoa. These same phytonutrients are major benefits to the regular consumption of brassica vegetables like kale and broccoli.
A handful of animal studies have demonstrated significantly less intestinal and body-fat inflammation and the ability of quinoa to improve biomarkers of metabolic syndrome.
