Quinoa is rich in calcium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus. It has twice the amount of magnesium than rice and wheat and exceeds beans by more than 20%.
With only 20 grams of quinoa flour consumption, 10% of the magnesium requirements in children, adolescents and adults are covered, making it a good source of this micronutrient.
Regarding vitamins, the content of thiamine and riboflavin in quinoa is similar to that of common cereals. Quinoa is a good source of thiamine: consuming 22 grams of whole quinoa or in flour covers up to 20% of the requirement in children from 1 to 8 years of age and 10% in adults and adolescents.
Quinoa is one of the best sources of vitamin E.
It is also an excellent source of ɣ-tocopherol, of biological relevance for its anticancer and anti-inflammatory potential.
Quinoa contains significant amounts of vitamin C, the presence of which is not common in cereals.
