Quinoa Flour is made from Quinoa, carefully milled in small batches to preserve nutrients and flavour. Ideal for vegetarian and vegan diets, Quinoa is naturally gluten-free and contains all amino acids that make a "complete" protein. Quinoa: Mother of All Grains Quinoa has a balanced set of amino acids and high protein content. In fact, organic quinoa flour is one of the most nutritious flours. Quinoa was named the "mother of all grains" by the Incas, who recognized and revered it as a super food. Quinoa is rich in calcium, iron, phosphorous and B vitamins. Because quinoa flour is also naturally gluten free, it's become very popular for gluten-free baking. Please note: Though quinoa has no gluten, our organic quinoa flour is not guaranteed to be gluten-free as products containing gluten are ground with the same mills as the quinoa. Tasty Tips and Storage Use Quinoa flour in combination with other flours for bread, biscuits, crepes, pancakes or tortillas, or as a thickener for sauces or soups. Substitute this flour for half of the all-purpose flour in recipes, and it can completely replace wheat flour in cakes and cookies. Quinoa flour pairs well with fruits, nuts and spices. Quinoa flour can be stored for six months in the freezer in our resealable bag, or an airtight container. If not storing in the freezer, store it in a cool, dry and dark place.
