Pseudocereals and the posibilities of their application in food technology, Amaranth and Quinoa application in food processing
Amaranth (Amaranthus) and quinoa are the two basic pseudocereals, which have already found application not only in food production, but also in other industrial sectors. In food processing, the seeds of both plants can be used in various ways – from milling into flour or turning into porridge, through roasted, expanded or extracted seeds production and further usage or processing of the obtained products. The seeds and products are e.g. transformed into various food concentrates. They can undergo pressing or fat extraction, which is rich in squalene. A relatively highest and widest application of both plants’ seeds can be found in bread, pastry and even confectionery production.
