Quinoa seeds have a shape similar to lentils and a pleasant and intense aroma, but it needs an accurate cleaning before being grinding in order to eliminate saponine, a bitter substance. From a nutritional point of view, quinoa is an almost complete food, it has a very high content of proteins with high biological value. In particoular, it is rich in lisine, an amino acid usually lacking in cereals. Quinoa contains mainly carbohydrates with a low glycemic index, fats and mineral salts (in descending order): potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, selenium, iron, zinc and copper. 
It is used from 20% to 30% with flours that generate gluten (spelt, wheat and Kamut) for the preparation of any sweet and savory baked products.
