    Contains protein, vitamins A, B6, E, calcium, iron, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, and potassium. Not only is quinoa high in protein, but the protein it supplies is complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids.

  • Describe Yourself: DIY`er

I am satisfied with the sprouting, although it was expensive to get it in New York. But I need to mention that about only 70% of seeds sprouted, 30% did not. I believe, this point has to be improved, so that at least 90% seeds could show sprouts.
