How will be food in the future? Which ingredient or product will be selected to eradicate extreme hunger or to become the key for interstellar trips? It is quite difficult to know how will be food in the future or which ingredients will form our menu in twenty years from now. But, guess what? Our bet is for quinoa!
Although quinoa has been known and consumed in the Andes for most than 7000 years, it is a new-arrived at our gastronomical culture. FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) and NASA have said quinoa will be the food of the future because of its extraordinary nutritional composition. Quinoa is an excellent ingredient for everybody, but especially for those who you have to take care of the most (kids, pregnant women…). The sacred Inca food is composed by all essential amino acids, magnesium, zinc, lithium, calcium, vitamins… Quinoa is perfect in its internal combination of proteins, fat and carbohydrates, and has no gluten.
Three different types of quinoa are available: white, red and black, each one with some differences in calories, protein and carbohydrate percentages… so, it is a better idea to eat quinoa than mixing the three types? The Real Quinoa used in GreenVita is made of white, red and black quinoa, and you can easily find it in our salads, veggie hamburgers and some sautéed dishes. Come to GreenVita and enjoy quinoa with us!
