High in Protein, Fiber & flavonoids
Green Hills Foods Quinoa Flakes is made from pure natural quinoa grains. Quinoa pronounced keen-wah is a grain crop originated in South America that is grown for its edible seeds. It is one of the world's most popular health foods and has reached "superfood status" a few years ago. These seeds were an important food source for the Inca Empire, they referred to it as the "mother of all grains" and believed it to be sacred. Quinoa is a gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids.
There are three main types: white, red and black. White quinoa is the most commonly consumed variety, even though the other variety is slowly increasing in demand. These days, you can find quinoa and products made with it all over the world, especially in health food stores and restaurants that emphasize natural foods. Quinoa can also be rolled into flakes or ground into flour, which can then be used for cooking and baking. Once you have rinsed it well, it can be cooked like rice. It will expand to several times the original size during cooking. Highly recommended for vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores alike. Don’t miss out on one of the world’s best complete protein food available.
