Applications


Quinoa flour can be either uncooked or roasted. It is commonly used in a 15 to 20 percent blend with wheat flour in desserts, bread, biscuits, and pancakes.

Several studies examined quinoa-wheat flour blends in bread, cakes, and cookies. It was concluded that bread made with 5 and 10 percent quinoa flour to be of good quality while baked goods in which greater amounts of quinoa flour were used resulted in bread with a decreased loaf volume, more open crumb grain, and a slightly harsher texture. At 30 percent, there was a bitter aftertaste.

Cake tests found the quality “acceptable” when quinoa flour was used up to 10 percent in the flour. In cookies, the flavor improved when blends of up to 20 percent were added. The spread and appearance improved with the addition of 2 percent lecithin.
