Black quinoa has a bit more of an earthy flavor than white quinoa and is ever so slightly sweeter. Like red quinoa, it holds it's shape well during cooking so is another good quinoa choice for cold salads.
Quinoa is one of very few plant foods that contains all nine amino acids, and is also rich in dietary fibre, B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, vitamin E and antioxidants. Being naturally gluten-free with low GI, quinoa is ideal for people prone to food allergies. High on the versatility scale, quinoa can be substituted for almost any grain in almost any recipe.
