Quinoa Processing Plants

Quinoa - for 6,000 years already a staple food in South America - enjoys worldwide a rapidly growing popularity. It is a pseudo-cereal, as it has a similar composition to cereals.

Unprocessed, quinoa is inedible because bitter-tasting saponins are on its seed coat for protection against pests. Classical industrial plants use water for removing saponins. By repeated washing of the quinoa, the saponins are removed.

SCHULE Mühlenbau has developed a process in which the saponins are removed without the use of water. This process has already been successfully implemented in the practice in South America.

The following overview shows machines which are used for the processing of quinoa. Here, you can find more information about various SCHULE machines.
