DetailsOrganic Quinoa Flour (pronounced keen-wa) is one of the most nutritious grain flour available. Quinoa was a staple food for the South American Indians living in the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains and was recognized for its superior nutritional qualities. It was dubbed "mother of all grains" by the Incas and had spiritual significance for them. Many traditions and ceremonies surrounded the cultivation, harvest and consumption of quinoa. Widespread exposure to the grain has led the rest of the world to come up with a number of quinoa-derived products, including cereal and flour. This nutrient-rich grain is a wonderful source of complete protein, providing all of the essential amino acids. This powerful little grain is a great addition to any diet, but is an ideal solution for those following a gluten free, vegan or vegetarian diet. This flour is also an excellent choice for those looking for a more healthful twist on standard baked goods and pan-fried favorites such as breads, pancakes and waffles. You can substitute this flour for half of the all-purpose flour in many recipes, or completely replace wheat flour in cakes and cookie recipes. Quinoa flour imparts its unique, nutty yet earthy flavor to your favorite baked goods. It pairs well with fruits, nuts, spices like cinnamon, cardamom, cumin and coriander, as well as herbs like rosemary.

- Great product
- I just made the sour cream fudge cupcake recipe that uses this quinoa flout----boy were they amazing! I am trying to eat gluten-free and am so glad I discovered your quinoa and coconut flours. The only substitution I gave to the recipe was using stevia instead of sugar, and at the end added a homemade sour cream/cream cheese/stevia/vanilla frosting, That's it! Everyone loved them! Thank you!!
- LOVE THIS PRODUCT! EXCELLENT QUALITY!
- I mix this in with my homemade bread recipes. I substitute 1 cup of all purpose flour with the quinoa flour. It boosts the nutrition and adds a nice light golden hue to my bread. The nutrition in this product is fantastic.
