DUBLIN, September 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Quinoa Seeds Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The global quinoa seeds market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 26.18% during the period 2016-2020.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: The growing demand for alternative sources of protein is an important trend spurring this market's growth prospects. Quinoa has a protein content significantly higher than most grains. In addition, quinoa has emerged as a good alternative to rice as part of a high-protein meal for vegetarians. Quinoa's protein content is around 14%-18%, which is more than that of wheat, maize, rice, and oats, and it can be a good substitute for animal-based protein.
Also, the calorific value of quinoa is more than that of eggs as well as milk and is comparable to that of meat. According to a research study conducted in 2009 by University of Chile, 15% of the total quinoa content is protein, which is approximately more than twice the amount found in most standard grains. The study also concluded that quinoa exhibits a complete amino acid profile, which is vital for the growth and development of the body. Also, quinoa has comparatively greater amounts of both lysine and isoleucine than other grains.
According to the report, emergence of quinoa as a superfood is a key driver aiding in the growth of this market. Quinoa can be added to hot breakfast cereal, used as a rice substitute, and added as an ingredient in rice dishes like pilaf and in salads and soups. It can also be used to make cookies, muffins, and fritters. The market potential of quinoa-based foods as superfoods is based on the blending capacity in terms of taste and functionality with other foods. Quinoa appeals to a large and growing consumer base looking for nutritious and natural ingredients-based foods to stay healthy.
