History of Quinoa
Quinoa (keen-wa), known to Bolivians as "The Mother Grain", is now being heralded as the "Supergrain of the Future". Ancient Harvest has worked with local, indigenous farming communities for over 30 years to offer delicious authentic foods you can trust. Our ancient grains descend from farms that span the entire length of the Bolivian "Altiplano" (high plains) at the base of the Andes Mountains. Not only do our products deliver a taste your whole family will love, but they are always gluten free, organic, non-GMO and delicious.
Now you can enjoy the goodness of quinoa in an instant! Ready in 90 seconds. Quinoa Flakes make a smooth and delicious hot cereal. Eat them plain or spice them up with your favorite toppings. Quinoa Flakes are not only for breakfast. Substitute a portion of Quinoa Flakes for flour in your favorite cookie recipe, include some in your smoothies for added nutrients and texture, or use them in place of bread crumbs to create the perfect gluten free coating on chicken tenders or fish.

I love these Organic Quinoa flakes! However, I have just realised I can get them much cheaper from my local supermarket (hence the 4 stars), so will buy them from there from now on. Still a great product and very handy for gluten free baking. Quinoa is the only grain/seed (whatever it is exactly) that is a complete protein, so it's perfect for vegetarians!
GREAT substitute for recipe calls for bread crumbs

I used it as a substitute for bread crumbs and tasted excellent! Plus, you can mix it with eggs, chives and nutritional yeast to thicken the texture, baking it into an egg patty.

Quinoa is good and fibirous.
Tastes quite healthy

Tastes quite boring but I suppose it is healthy for me as it is gluten-free and I tested positive for coeliac disease recently. Would be better if they included recipes on the back to turn it into a muffin or something. Other than directions to make a hot porridge. Has consistency of semolina when cooked. Maybe I'll try adding dried fruit, coconut flakes etc. It is ok. I wouldn't laced it as 'amazing' though. However it wasn't gritty and didn't have dirt/rocks in it unlike some other brands of quinoa, lentils etc which is good.
Good for matzoh balls

It took my wife some experimentation and hard work, but she finally made excellent matzoh balls from these flakes. Much more seasoning was needed than recipes found online, but in the end, the matzoh balls were really good.
