False | Quinoa contains gluten.
Those who have celiac disease or are sensitive to gluten know how hard but necessary it is to leave out starches such as bread and pasta, in one's diet. Thankfully there are great alternatives such as quinoa. According to nutrition and cooking coach, Libby Mills, MS, RD, “because of its starchy qualities, it gets categorized with other starchy foods...like beans, lentils, dried peas, potatoes and oatmeal.” But in fact, it contains only a small amount of gluten and is said to be safe even for those that should not consume gluten.
