Culpepers Quinoa FlakesThu, 14 Mar 2019
Culpepers have launched Quinoa Flakes in a 700g bag.
The white quinoa seed is rolled flat to make a flake, just like rolled oats. It is important to first rinse the flakes to remove the quinoa's natural coating. Called saponin, it makes the flakes taste soapy and bitter. Use a 1 to 3 ratio of quinoa flakes to water. Boil the water, add the flakes and stir for about 90 seconds. Let sit for a minute or two and they're ready to use.
Quinoa flakes make the most amazing, creamy hot cereals. They have a smoother texture than oats.
Quinoa flakes act as a binder and are perfect for making "no-bake" treats like granola clusters.
Quinoa is wheat gluten-free, high in plant-based protein and full of good fibre.
Saponins serve and important purpose when the quinoa is still growing. They deter insects from eating it.
Culpepers Quinoa Flakes are from Australia (Western Australia)
