How Many Calories Are in Quinoa?

Do You Know How Many Calories Are in Quinoa?

We love the superfood grain quinoa for its hunger-fighting, filling, protein-packed properties — and for its versatility. You can use quinoa for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and more! Quinoa is also a decent source of calcium, potassium, and energy-boosting iron.

A single serving of quinoa is 1/4 cup of dry grain, which cooked up equates to about 3/4 of a cup. Each serving of quinoa has 156 calories. If you're counting macros or calories, here's the full nutritional breakdown.

Serving Size Calories Fat (g) Carbs (g) Fiber (g) Protein (g) Calcium (mg)
