I Heart Keenwah, makers of ready-to-eat healthy quinoa snacks, and boil-and-eat Toasted Quinoa, introduced its first breakfast item – Toasted Quinoa Hot Cereal.
I Heart Keenwah’s Toasted Quinoa Hot Cereal is available in two varieties – unsweetened and lightly sweetened with lucuma fruit. Lucuma fruit is sourced from the Peruvian highlands and boasts a maple-like sweetness without refined sugar.
Both varieties of Toasted Quinoa Hot Cereal are made from Organic Bolivian Royal Quinoa, a single-origin heirloom seed sourced only from the Salt Flat region of Bolivia.
In addition to being USDA organic, Toasted Quinoa Hot Cereal is naturally gluten-free, Non-GMO Project verified, and Fair Trade certified. Plus, it’s a complete source of plant-based protein (5g), containing all nine essential amino acids.
“With two small kids at home, instant oatmeal was our go-to for a quick hot breakfast, but I was alarmed at the high sugar and low nutritional value most oatmeal options had to offer,” says Sarah Chalos, president and co-founder of I Heart Keenwah. “Our Toasted Quinoa Hot Cereal is the perfect oatmeal alternative because it’s low sugar, deliciously nutty, and high in protein.”
