Ingredion recently announced a new addition to its growing range of plant-based proteins, HOMECRAFT® Quinoa 112 flour.
Quinoa is an ancient grain, quinoa seed is gluten-free, low glycemic, and recognized for its nutrients, fiber and proteins. HOMECRAFT® Quinoa 112 is milled from a proprietary waxy variety of the golden quinoa seed. Quinoa flour can be used in a variety of traditional and gluten-free formulations, including baked goods, snacks, pasta, pet food and more.
“The launch of HOMECRAFT Quinoa 112 flour is just one of the many steps our growth platform is taking to accelerate the availability and use of plant-based proteins globally,” said Paul Petersen, Ingredion’s vice president of plant-based proteins and global protein strategy and innovation lead. “Food manufacturers now have another option for developing nutrient-dense products that leverage the protein, fiber and nutrition found in ancient grains.”
According to Ingredion’s website, while most quinoa ingredients sourced from South America, Ingredion’s HOMECRAFT® Quinoa 112 flour is grown, harvested and milled in a completely vertically integrated operation in Canada. This allows Ingredion to offer food manufacturers consistent pricing, reliability and stability of supply.
