To those of you who are not aware, Quinoa is a grain crop which originated from South America and its products are meant to be of high health value. In that, a huge demand rose for the Quinoa rice in India. The reason for that is, it contains high proteins and some are getting addicted to it big time.

Given its credentials, the Tollywood circles became a big fan of this rice. Of course, the pricing is rather premium because one kilo of this rice is nothing less than Rs 1500. But lately, a new tension has set in. According to recent studies, along with the proteins, even the fat content is also high.

As a result, whoever has been eating the Quinoa rice also needs to burn a lot of calories which has become difficult. That way, just like a new fashion in market, the Quinoa rice mania picked up swiftly in Tollywood but it also faded out quickly. Most of the times, many take to such things without knowing about it scientifically so be aware from next time.
