Quinoa flour is tasty and has a very light texture. If for a long time it was considered an exotic and niche flour, now with PASTA NATURA it will become one of your best ingredients in the kitchen. It is perfect for making delicious savory recipes. Quinoa is not a cereal, but a plant belonging to grasses and is part of the same family as beets and spinach. Its great nutritional value has made it interesting for all those who want to eat healthily. Being naturally gluten-free and of plant origin, quinoa flour is perfect for meeting the dietary needs of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan diets.
Quinoa flour is very rich from a nutritional point of view. Contains all essential amino acids and is rich in protein. For this reason, quinoa is a very popular ingredient in the vegan world. Quinoa is also a source of minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and zinc. The fatty acids contained are the "good" ones: omega 3 and vitamin E are found in quinoa. Another important aspect of quinoa flour values is that it has a very low glycemic index, so it can enter the diet of those in need to keep blood sugar levels under control.
Quinoa has a particular taste, there are those who claim to feel the scents of legumes and those who say it reminds them of the taste of cabbage. For this reason, quinoa flour lends itself to the preparation of savory recipes such as bread, savory muffins and rustic pies. The considerable presence of proteins makes this flour suitable for bread making. Quinoa flour can be used alone to make baked goods with a "firm" dough such as biscuits. For elastic doughs such as bread, you will need to mix it with other flours, in a ratio of 80-20%. If you want to use it for making sweet recipes, attenuating the strong flavor of quinoa, just take a few precautions. By choosing a soft flavored flour to mix it, you will get a base with a more neutral flavor. This base can be used to make desserts based on strong flavored ingredients such as coffee, chocolate and spices. You will discover new and interesting aromatic notes, an intense taste that remains etched in the memory and in the heart.
