What Are Organic Quinoa Flakes?
Quinoa is similar to buckwheat in just as many ways as it is different. Just like Buckwheat Quinoa isn't a grain at all but rather a seed...at best it could be considered a pseudo-cereal.
It looks a bit like couscous and is as versatile as rice, but quinoa has a richer, nuttier flavour than either of them; its been eaten traditionally for generations and originates in South America where it has grown for more than 5,000 years in and around the Andes Mountains.
It is exceptionally healthy and orders of magnitude better for you than equivalent grains and again just like buckwheat as its not a grain, it doesn't produce gluten and as such is not classified as an allergen!
Why Should I Get Organic Quinoa Flakes?
Quinoa flakes are a high protein, high fibre "pseudo" cereal. They are similar to oats in general and just like all cereals go down a treat with a dash of milk first thing in the morning. You can easily heat them up at this point to create a delicious porridge.
All of this cereal talk does not mean you are limited to using them in such a manner, as these can still be enjoyed in the same ways as good old quinoa grain and they make a wonderful substitute to barley in soups and casseroles. The best thing about quinoa flakes is that they of course are still quinoa and therefore still have all the nutritional benefits you would expect in the first place.
