Quinoa is a grain crop that is grown for its edible seeds. It is pronounced Keen-Wah. It technically isn't a cereal grain, but a pseudocereal. In other words, it is basically a "seed" which is prepared and eaten similarly to a grain. Quinoa was an important crop for the inca empire back in the day. They referred to it as the "Mother of all grains" and believed it to be sacred. It has been consumed for thousands of years in south america, although it only became trendy and reached "superfood status" a few years ago. These days, you can find quinoa and products made with it all over the world... Especially in health food stores and restaurants that emphasize natural foods. There are three main types of quinoa... White, Red, and Black.
