'Supergrain’ quinoa crisps add texture, nutrition
July 1, 2013
Take advantage of the superpowered appeal of a “supergrain” by formulating with quinoa crisps from SK Food International. Light and nutty in flavor, the crisps are crunchy in texture. They provide identity preserved, whole grain, non-GMO and certified-organic benefits to baked foods and snacks.
Quinoa, pronounced “keen-wah,” is considered an ancient grain, meaning it has remained unchanged over time by modern science and plant-breeding techniques. Like other ancient grains, quinoa is often called a supergrain because of its high level of protein and superior content of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. It is also gluten-free.
“Quinoa crisps easily incorporate into a variety of food applications,” said SK Food’s Tara Froemming. These include cereals, snack foods, granola and energy bars. “As an ingredient solution provider, we are able to provide assistance in the product formulation stage and recommend a product that will best fit with a specific application and desired final product.”
SK Food prepares quinoa crisps through a custom milling process and offers them in varying size options, ranging from 1.7 to 3.75 mm. Packaging sizes include 50-lb bags and bulk totes.
