Some people call it 'Baby Quinoa' - but that sells Kaniwa short. Half the size of quinoa but otherwise quite similar, Kaniwa has a bit more personality with a nutty, slightly sweet flavour. It is also quite the nutrition powerhouse. Yes, it gets talked about as an 'Ancient Grain'; it gets used as a starch but as it is actually a seed, it has got nearly twice the protein and fibre of rice, and is known to be full of antioxidants. It is also free of the saponins that can make quinoa quite soapy and bitter. Hailing from Peru and Bolivia, Kaniwa grows high in the Andes, at altitudes where quinoa is unable to cope. Who says Kaniwa is the baby of the bunch?!
Did you know? A seed people use like a starch is referred to as a "pseudocereal." Another example would be buckwheat kasha.
