Nature’s Superfoods’ Organic Purpose Corn-Quinoa Cereal is made ENTIRELY of four wholesome Andean Superfoods – purple corn, quinoa, raw cacao nibs and yacon. NOTHING ELSE is added. The process of making this cereal is carefully crafted to preserve the nutrients of each superfood ingredient while making them more bio-available to the human body.
PURPLE CORN: Grown in the Peruvian Andes, the Purple Corn with its beautifully deep purple kernels (purple foods are good for you), is one of nature’s richest sources of anthocyanin antioxidants that help protect the heart, promote blood circulation, normalize high blood pressure, and improve cholesterol levels and diabetic conditions (by enhancing glucose metabolism). Purple Corn has higher antioxidant capacity than blueberries and other corn varieties, making it an exciting new superfood of our time. Purple Corn also has higher protein and fiber content than white or yellow corn.
QUINOA: High-protein, high-fiber whole grain that contains all 9 essential amino acids (including lysine), B vitamins, folate, calcium, magnesium, a diverse array of antioxidants and many more nutrients; known for its high amount of superior protein (12-18%), which is higher than all other grains (50% more than wheat). Daily consumption of Quinoa is a good way to reduce risks of such inflammation-related problems as diabetes, hypertension, etc. (including obesity).
RAW CACAO NIBS: The premium criollo cacao bean variety. This is raw cocoa at its purest, and most non-processed and nutrient-dense state. Raw cacao is a feel-good superfood with lots of bliss nutrients (like PEA and anandamide), vitamins, minerals and high levels of heart-healthy flavonoids (that can be easily destroyed when processed into common chocolate). Raw Cacao lifts your mood, makes you feel energized, and protects your heart at the same time. The Raw Cacao Nibs in this cereal gives it a pleasant chocolatey taste.
YACON ROOT: Pre-biotic superfood that promotes digestion and colon health by stimulating the growth and function of “good” bacteria in the intestine. The addition of Yacon Root lends the cereal a natural and mild sweet tone.
How To Use:
1) Add 2 tablespoons to smoothies, yogurt, oatmeal or breakfast.
2) Eat it out of the bag like a snack.
