Quinoa seeds are edible, naturally gluten-free products derived from plants of the goosefoot family. These seeds contain high quantities of fiber, zinc, iron, copper, folate, calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, antioxidants, and vitamins B1, B6 and E. As they are rich in proteins and comprise all essential amino acids, they are extensively utilized as a substitute for rice. Moreover, quinoa seeds help reduce the risk of obesity, cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure (BP), type-2 diabetes and different types of cancer. They also aid in keeping blood sugar under control due to their low glycemic index (GI).

Quinoa seeds are versatile, easy to prepare and have a slightly nutty flavor. This, along with the growing awareness amongst individuals about their health benefits, such as improving immunity, promoting healthy gut microbes and managing hypertension, is increasing the consumption of quinoa seeds. They are widely consumed with vegetables and fruits, as flour to fortify baked goods, and in salads, porridge, soups, stews and shakes. Moreover, the emerging trend of vegan diets and the rising number of people with gluten intolerance are escalating the market growth. Apart from this, waste saponins removed from quinoa seeds are finding applications in the production of beer, soaps, detergents, fire extinguishers, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. Furthermore, due to technological advancements and increasing investments in research and development (R&D) activities, the key players are developing quinoa seed varieties that can be cultivated in temperate climates. This is anticipated to enhance crop productivity and drive the market in the future.
