CHICAGO —Â I Heart Keenwah, makers of quinoa snack and pantry items, will unveil Microwaveable Toasted Quinoa at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California, in March. The new product line will be available in three flavors (Sea Salt, Garlic and Spanish Style), providing a more convenient and instant way for consumers to enjoy I Heart Keenwahâs critically acclaimed toasted heirloom quinoa.
Like I Heart Keenwahâs other Toasted Quinoa products, Microwavable Toasted Quinoa starts with Organic Bolivian Royal Quinoa, a single-origin heirloom seed sourced only from the Salt Flat region of Bolivia. The seeds are gently toasted, a nod to the traditional way of preparing quinoa in Bolivia, resulting in a nutty flavor and fluffy texture, and then pre-cooked before being sealed in a BPA-free, microwave-ready bag. I Heart Keenwah is the only US brand specializing in toasted quinoa products.
âConvenience is king,â said I Heart Keenwah co-founder Ravi Jolly. âWe are excited to offer a quicker-cooking version of our toasted quinoa.â
Microwaveable Toasted Quinoa cooks in the microwave in just 90 seconds. Itâs naturally gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, organic, and fair trade. Plus, itâs a complete source of plant-based protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids.
Microwavable Toasted Quinoa will be available online at shop.iheartkeenwah.com or Amazon starting this fall, and will roll out in select retailers nationwide in September. To learn about I Heart Keenwah and their products, visit www.iheartkeenwah.com.
