La Tierra® Organic Premium Golden Quinoa (1lb) La Tierra® 有機頂級金黃藜麥(1磅)

Tiny, bead-shaped, with a slightly bitter flavour and firm texture, quinoa may not be a household name just yet, but it is set for a starry future - as far as grains go. The Incas have known it all along, for thousands of years regarding it as the 'mother grain'. Grown it high up in the Andes of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia, quinoa was successfully domesticated 3,000 to 4,000 years ago for human consumption.

Unlike wheat or rice, quinoa is a complete protein - containing all eleven essential amino acids. It has been recognized by the United Nations as a supercrop for its health benefits: packed with dietary fibre, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. It is also gluten-free and easy to digest. The facts suggest it is close to a perfect ingredient as you can get.

Cooking Direction: Prepare quinoa as you would prepare rice. Place 1 part quinoa to 2 parts water (or broth) in your rice cooker.

跟米和麥不同,藜麥是全蛋白質的,擁有所有十一種必要的氨基酸,營養價值極高,被聯合國確認為超級穀物。它含豐富的膳食纖維,,和鐵,不含麩質,容易消化,近乎是完美的成分組合!

Why is Quinoa so Good?

Super Rich in Protein
Quinoa is one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat. It is a complete protein containing all eleven essential amino acids.

Weight Loss
Quinoa is relatively low in calories (aprox. 137 calories / serving). Even if you over-eat quinoa, you would get a much larger quantity of food for fewer calories than a plate of pasta. This is why quinoa is becoming popular as a grain alternative and weight loss food.

Twice as much fiber as most other grains
Fiber relieves constipation, and prevent heart disease by reducing high blood pressure and diabetes. Fiber also lowers cholesterol and glucose levels.

Promote Brain Health
Quinoa contains Iron, keeping our red blood cells healthy and is the basis of hemoglobin formation. Iron carries oxygen from one cell to another and supplies oxygen to our muscles to aid in their contraction. Iron also increases brain function because the brain takes in about 20% of our blood oxygen.

Energy Booster and Anti-aging
Quinoa is high in Riboflavin (B2). B2 improves energy metabolism within brain and muscle cells and is known to help create proper energy production in cells. Manganese is an antioxidant, which helps to prevent damage of mitochondria during energy production as well as to protect red blood cells and other cells from injury by free radicals.

藜麥究竟有什麼好處?

非常豐富的蛋白質
藜麥是蛋白質含量最高的食物之一,蘊含有十一種重要的氨基酸。

減肥食物
藜麥的卡路里含量相對低(約每份137卡路里),即使吃多了,所吸收的卡路里也比吃麵食為少。所以,以藜麥代替穀物或作為減肥食物越來越普遍。

是其他穀物纖維含量的兩倍
纖維有助解決便秘,降血壓和糖尿病,故能預防心臟病。亦有助降低膽固醇和血糖水平。

促進腦部健康
藜麥含鐵質,有助保持紅血球健康,也是血紅蛋白形成的基礎。鐵質負責將氧氣傳送至細胞,為肌肉提供氧氣,幫助其收縮。另外,由於腦部用去血液氧氣的20%,故鐵質亦有助提升腦部功能。

提升能量,抗衰老
藜麥含豐富的核黄素(B2),有助改善腦部和肌肉細胞中能量的新陳代謝,並幫助細胞產生能量。另外,錳是一種抗氧化物,有助預防能量產生時對線粒體的損耗,並能保護紅血球細胞及其他細胞,不受游離基的傷害。
