Organic quinoa puffs give you all the benefits of quinoa in a crispy snack. Just add milk and enjoy; no cooking needed. Puffed quinoa also makes a crunchy addition to yogurt, oatmeal and granola bars. The best part? It’s packed with high-quality protein, fiber and iron so it not only tastes great but is also great for you!
3 Surprising Health Benefits of Puffed Quinoa
1) Protein Powerhouse: Quinoa is one of few plant foods that provides a complete protein source with all nine essential amino acids. This makes puffed quinoa an excellent post-workout snack when served alongside fruit or as a topping for Greek yogurt.
2) High in Fiber: Quinoa puffs are also a good source of fiber, providing three grams per serving. The fiber found in quinoa is beneficial for digestive health. Quinoa puffs contain nearly twice as much fiber as nearly all other grains.
3) Rich in Iron: The mineral iron is necessary for the transport of oxygen-rich red blood cells throughout the body, and quinoa puffs are a great source of it. A single serving provides over 25 percent of the daily value (DV) for iron.
