I began to wonder when posting my topic about pea protein if there is such thing as quinoa protein isolate or concentrate, seeing as it is one of the kings of vegetable protein and has nearly no allergin problems, as soy does. Turns out it has been developed. I don't know when we will see it, though. Yay for a new vegan protein option, though.

 

The present invention relates to a new source of high quality plant protein, termed, 'quinoa protein concentrate (QPC)', which contains at least about 50 wt % protein which is food-grade and/or pharmaceutical-grade and methods of preparing such protein concentrates as well as starch, oil, and fiber from quinoa grain. The quinoa protein concentrate of the invention is useful as food ingredients, infant formula ingredients, cosmetic ingredients, pet food ingredients, and animal feed supplements.
