Quinoa Flour

Description

This type of flour is obtained from the processing of  Quinoa seed.  Chenopodium quinoa, a grass originating in South America, belongs to the same family that includes spinach and beet.  Naturally gluten free, thanks to its high nutritional value and characteristic properties, quinoa has particularly beneficial effects on the body and its consumption results in an improvement of physiological functions. Lightly flavoured, high in fibre and protein may be used on its own or mixed with other types of flour, giving dough a distinctive taste.  Quinoa is very versatile and can be used to make bread, sweets and fresh pasta.
