Description

Organic Quinoa Flakes are a great alternative to refined cereals.

Organic Quinoa flakes are derived from whole quinoa (which is actually a seed rather than a grain).  Quinoa flakes are made by gently heating the hulled grain or ‘seed’ and then rolling them flat.

These versatile flakes can be used in breads, cakes and biscuits as a gluten free alternative to traditional wheat based flours.  Quinoa flakes are nutrient rich and a great option for those looking for alternatives due to allergy or intolerance.

Quinoa is a ‘pseudo-grain’ which means that although we use it as a grain it is actually a seed.   This means it is higher in nutrients and protein than most grains and makes these flakes a perfect nutritional boost to your breakfast.
