Qunioa Flour

            Quinoa flour is a nutritional powerhouse gluten-free flour that I use in my bread recipes.

Quinoa flour is ground from the quinoa plant. Like teff, the quinoa seed is also a powerhouse of nutrition.  It’s high in vitamins, minerals and fiber.  It has all the essential eight amino acids, making it a complete protein. It also contains zinc, iron, calcium, vitamin B, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and manganese. 


This nutritious seed has been cultivated in South America for over 3000 years. Quinoa was a staple food, revered by the Incas for the strength and endurance it gave people who consumed it.  It has a slightly nutty taste.  


I recently began using Vitacost brand Quinoa flour and have been very pleased with it, too. It is a great addition to my multi-grains breads, waffles and pancakes. I even add a small amount to my tortillas, too. 


You can often find quinoa flour at many grocery stores now in their natural sections. And most health food stores carry it, too. 


It's also available on Amazon and iherb
