BOULDER, Colo.– No time to cook but want a delicious, complete-protein dish that goes from microwave to table in 90 seconds? Meet heat-and-eat Organic Quinoa from Ancient Harvest, the company that introduced the South American superfood to the U.S. more than 30 years ago. Each serving has up to 11 grams of protein with no GMOs, rice or fillers, preservatives, additives, or artificial flavors or colors, making it the new clean-food superstar of convenience foods.
Ancient Harvest’s newest quinoa collection comes in three pre-cooked varieties: Organic Quinoa with Sea Salt, Organic Quinoa with Chickpeas & Garlic, and Organic Quinoa with Lentils & Garlic. Each variety contains simple, all-organic ingredients and is made with organic coconut oil, which has been linked to health benefits ranging from antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to weight loss and cholesterol control.
The line delivers roughly twice the amount of protein of rice-based ready-to-eat products – thanks to quinoa’s status as one of the few plant foods that contains all nine essential amino acids – along with up to 9 grams of fiber.
Each 8 oz, BPA-free pouch contains two servings that are ready to eat with just 90 seconds in the microwave or warmed up in a skillet – ideal for an instant snack, mini-meal or side dish at home, work or on the road.
The new line will hit store shelves this summer at an MSRP of $3.49. It is being sampled for the first time at Booth #5478, Hall E, Anaheim Convention Center, at the Natural Products Expo West conference that opens next week in Anaheim, CA.
