Certified Organic Quinoa Flakes

Quinoa Flakes look and taste like rolled oats. They are made from the quinoa seed and steam pressed to create the flake. They are most often used as a gluen free replacement to oats and are great as a breakfast, in desserts, breads and cookies.

Quinoa (pronounced keen-oa or keenwa) was originally cultivated in the the Andean region of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia. It was domesticated 3-4 thousand years ago and there is evidence of its use stretching back even further. The name Quinoa is derived from the Spanish spelling of the Quechua name kinwa. Its health benefits are such that it is classified a Superfood and has a higher protein content per 100 calories than brown rice, barley, potatoes and millet.

Organic Quinoa Royale is the best quality of quinoa available worldwide. It is grown at high altitudes, generally in Bolivia or Peru. After harvest the seeds are rinsed to remove the bitter tasting saponins. Saponins occur naturally in quinoa and are a natural pesticide, making them unpopular with birds and allowing the seed to grow untouched.

Quinoa’s various forms:

SeedsBlack, Red, White & Tri-Colour
  • White quinoa is the largest seed and therefore expands more when cooked, generally soaking up more liquid. It’s popular in stews and used often as a rice replacement.
  • Red and black quinoa have a slightly nuttier flavour and are used more for their aesthetic qualities and slightly crunchier texture. They holds their shape better than white quinoa when cooked and so are more commonly used in salads where a wholegrain shape is desired. It has been said that red and black quinoa may have more antioxidant properties than white due to their there are no clinical studies to back up this theory.
  • Tri-Colour is a blend of all 3 colours. It is used often in breads and salads for it’s great colour range. Bear in mind the cooking times for the 3 seeds vary slightly, make sure the red and black seeds are cooked through before taking off the stove.
