Organic Quinoa Flakes
Country of Origin:
Our organic quinoa flakes are a versatile ingredient for savory lunches and dinners; quinoa flakes shine when you want an easy but healthy breakfast high in protein but low in fat and calories.
Similar to rolled oats, quinoa flakes are simply mechanically flattened grains of quinoa; while they do cost quite a bit more than oatmeal, they make a convenient breakfast suitable for all types of diets. Quinoa flakes provide all the health benefits of whole grain quinoa with a more familiar breakfast texture and a much quicker cooking time.
Quinoa is gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain sufficient amounts of all nine essential amino acids.
It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants.
Quinoa was an important crop for the Inca Empire. They referred to it as the "mother of all grains" and believed it to be sacred.
It has been eaten for thousands of years in South America and only recently became a trend food, even reaching superfood status.
