Is Quinoa diet Safe?

The answer is simple, yes, quinoa diet is 100% and eating quinoa is safe.

There are a lot of stories floating around the toxicity of the quinoa. So let’s clear a few things up:

  • Quinoa does contain saponin but only in its natural state. Most of the organic quinoas that you can buy online or in the shop are already rinsed.
  • Quinoa sold commercially in North America has been processed to remove the coating.
  • Its leaves contain Chenopodium but we don’t really eat the leaves either so that’s not a problem.
  • Quinoa is 100% gluten-free so people with celiac disease can still consume it and it’s also perfect for vegetarians.
