    Description

    Quinoa flour is a flour produced from quinoa, a grain-like seed native to the Andes of South America. Quinoa is a somewhat unique grain, in that it has a very high protein content which made it a critical part of the Andean diet for centuries. 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 flour can be made from milled or unmilled seeds. Unmilled seeds produce a more coarse, nutritious flour, while milled ones are used to make a much smoother flour. In either case, the flour is typically a creamy yellow to ivory colour. Quinoa is gluten free, so the flour can be safely used in gluten-free baking projects for people with gluten intolerance. Bakers should be careful, however, as it may be processed in a facility that contains gluten, in which case it can become contaminated.

    The remarkably high protein content of quinoa grains holds true in quinoa flour, with the protein content averaging around 17%. This flour is also very high in dietary fibre. The high protein content can interfere with some baking, so many bakers recommend mixing quinoa with other flours, rather than using it alone. Plain quinoa flour can make dishes seem gluey, heavy, or sticky, a result which is generally viewed as undesirable.
    May contain nuts, celery, mustard or sesame seeds.
