This not-easy-to-find quinoa has a slightly sweeter taste in comparison with white quinoa. Every bite gives you a little kick as it is blissfully crunchy. In Ayacucho, we usually use the variety "Black Ccoito".
Standard or a special consistency just for you, it’s all possible. Our standard tricolor contains 60% white quinoa, 20% red and 20% black. Red, black and tricolor is ideal to bring up colour in blends.

Also our quinoa flour is from Peruvian quinoa but the flour is produced in Europe. The grains are milled without heating.
Quinoa flour can be used for binding and thickening and is very suitable in for instance gluten-free bakery products.
It can be used in many applications such as bread, biscuits and cakes, but also in pasta and noodles, soups, drinks, desserts, etc.
Likewise our flour and flakes, our quinoa pops are from Peruvian quinoa but the quinoa is puffed in Europe. The whole quinoa grains are puffed by using hot steam and high pressure.
