A new study has found quinoa flour has the same amount of protein as other grain and white flour types.
It was released online on Thursday by the Australian National University’s Centre for Food and Nutrition Research.
Quinoa has been growing rapidly in the world for more than a century.
It is one of the most nutritious grains in the Western diet and is being grown on small farms around the world.
But the study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, found that quinoa was more nutritious than other grains.
The team found that the quinoa grain contained more than 7% protein.
It also contained around 4% of total carbohydrates.
Quaking in your mouth”In the study of a large group of people, the protein content was greater than the carbohydrate content,” lead author Dr Andrew Neeley said.
“There is a lot of variability in the protein levels and we can’t say how much protein is there, but the protein is greater than all the other grains combined.”
The researchers also found that people with diabetes or those who were obese or had high blood pressure were more likely to have a higher protein intake than people without these conditions.
Dr Neeleys team tested quinoa for its protein content.
It found that its protein was similar to those of wheat and oats.
He said it was unlikely that quaking in the mouth caused the extra protein.
“It would be quite a big shock if someone had a heart attack from the increased protein content,” Dr NeeLEY said.
“That would be a lot more severe than if someone took an overdose of protein and then fell asleep.”
He said the protein level of quinoa could be an indicator of its nutrient content.
“If we want to know if the quipa contains the same protein as the other grain, we need to know the protein of the grains in question,” Dr Dyson said.
He said he and his team wanted to know more about the health benefits of quicam and how it could help the developing world.
“We wanted to understand if it would reduce malnutrition in children, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa,” he said.
