Dear Anana
Quinoa is a problem, because the SA Food Tables do not list the nutritive value of this cereal. However, I wrote an article 'Quinoa - Is it really a miracle food?' last year, so click on 'DietnFood' and do a Search with the title of the article which includes the nutritive value of cooked quinoa.
Best regards

What does The package of Quinoa look like? I live in Northern KZN and have searched the supermarkets but not found this item?
