It is a carbohydrate food, but as with most foods, in moderation it could be a good one to eat. Here's some information I dug up on it.
Now you have me more curious about it. Me and my daughter were talking about trying some in the future.

Quinoa is oh so good! It is low on the Glycemic index and for (most) people it will not spike thier BG like rice or couscous would so it makes and excellent sustitution for rice and cous cous for both hot and cold dishes. As always make sure to check how it works with your body, but over all and nutritionally, it is a better choice than rice.

I use it!
The company makes Red, Black, White... and a mx of all three! I like the red and the black. The white makes me pee like a pregnant girl.... so I don't eat it... https://www.google.com/#hl=en&tbo=d&site=&source=h
There is also a quinoa pasta https://www.google.com/#hl=en&tbo=d&q=quinoa+pasta
I have found that when I want something... I find a way to morph some good ingredients into something I can live with...http://phatboyzklub.wordpress.com/conscious-cheati

I have also tried it and love it! I have made Quinoa pancakes before and they are so good. For me it does not make my bg spike. Like everything else moderation is the key too. I have made it all kinds of ways and mixed it in with different things and love it. Just test after you have had some and hopefully it does not make your bg spike. Lisa
