    Q: Is quinoa a good source of protein for a CKD patient?

    A: Yes, quinoa can be a good source of protein. 1 cup of quinoa has the following:
    8gm protein
    40gm carbohydrates
    5gm fiber
    281mg phosphorous
    318mg Potassium

    Variety is key with any type of diet; don’t count on quinoa alone as your source of protein. For one thing it would get boring quickly only eating one type of food.
    ** One word of caution, if you need to limit your potassium at this point, because everyone’s lab values are unique and different. This may not be the best source for you.
