Organic quinoa flakes are simply quinoa that has been rolled into a very thin flake. They are commonly used to prepare a hot breakfast cereal.
Quinoa, the “mother grain,” is an extremely nutritious seed. It has a protein value that is extremely high (12-18%) and the protein it supplies is complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids. Because of this, it takes less quinoa protein to meet one’s protein needs than wheat protein. Quinoa is easy to digest and naturally contains no gluten. It is also a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorous, magnesium, and iron. They are naturally very low in calories, are very low in fat, and are cholesterol- free. Excellent source of plant-based protein and dietary fibers.
Unlike quinoa, quinoa flakes are ready in almost no time, just like instant oatmeal! Just boil some water, add quinoa flakes and let it sit for a minute or two, stir, and you’re ready to go! Use a 1:3 ratio of quinoa flakes to water (one cup of quinoa flakes to three cups of water).
