Kinako, which translates into yellow flour, is type of Japanese flour made by grinding roasted whole soybeans. Unlike most other flours, kinako is fully cooked and is most commonly eaten right out of the packaging. Kinako has a distinctive warm, nutty flavor that is similar in flavor to roasted peanuts. It is used to coat wagashi (traditional Japanese desserts) such as warabimochi and dango. Kinako can also be used to make drinks or used as a garnish for sweets such as raindrop cake.
Uses: Kinako provides balance for sweeter desserts with its nutty and mild flavor. It can also be used to make drinks, thicken foods, and as an ingredient in baking.
