Most other grains are deficient in 1 or more essential amino acids. Quinoa also contains more protein than any other grain. It was such an important source of nutrients during the Inca civilization that the Incas considered the staple crop sacred. Quinoa is now widely known as one of the most complete natural foods on planet earth (contains a balanced profile of amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, fibre, antioxidants, and phytonutrients).
