"The World Health Organization has rated the quality of protein in quinoa at least equivalent to that in milk."

Får väl käka mer quinoa igen helt enkelt.

Mer som jag råkade hitta men inte har tittat på ännu:

http://www.becomehealthynow.com/article/proteins/309/ - verkar ointressant
http://www.ifafitness.com/book1/protein.htm - lite vettigare

Stadsträdgården i örebro, de säljer massa ekologiskt, däribland quinoa. Vill minnas att urtekram har det i sitt sortiment också, eller om det var biofood.

Annan site är http://www.quinoa.net/

I välsorterade livsmedelsbutiker och i de flesta hälsokostbutiker.

Amaranth är också en intressant produkt. Den har jag själv sett bara på hälsokostbutiker än så länge, men med tanke på hur snabbt quinoan spred sig till minsta Kalle på hörnet-affär, är det nog bara en tidsfråga innan vi kan hitta även amaranth så gott som överallt.


För den intresserade, en artikel om näringsinnehållet i amaranth:

Plant Foods Hum Nutr. 1999;54(4):327-36.
Nutrient and antinutrient composition of Amaranthus muricatus.

Escudero NL, Albarracin G, Fernandez S, De Arellano LM, Mucciarelli S.

Universidad Nacional de San Luis. Facultad de Quimica, Bioquimica y ********, Ejercito de los Andes 950, San Luis, Argentina.

The chemical and nutritional composition of the aerial parts of Amaranthus muricatus was assessed. This is a wild plant growing well in arid and poor soil, which are not suitable for cereals. The material under study was boiled, dried and ground and then evaluated for chemical, nutritional and antinutritional properties. Protein concentration of the amaranth flour was 15.74 g/100 g and total dietary fiber content was high (53.81 g/100 g), with 79% coming from insoluble dietary fiber. The calcium content was 1533 mg/100 g and the Ca/P ratio (5.94) was markedly higher than the value suggested in the 1989 Recommended Dietary Allowances. Fifty-nine percent of the fatty acids present were unsaturated with linoleic acid accounting for 40% of the total fatty acid content. Nitrate, hemagglutinin, trypsin inhibitor and saponin contents were within the non-critical values. Net protein utilization (NPU), true digestibility (tD) and biological value (BV) measurements indicated a nitrogen gain of 74% that of casein. The results of this study indicate a nutritive potential for the A. muricatus leaves, therefore, domestication of this plant is suggested along with assessment of its chemical and nutritional properties.
