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 now use Vitacost brand Quinoa flour and have been very pleased with it. 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.
