Quinoa contains more high protein than any other grain. The National Academy of Sciences calls Quinoa "one of the best sources of protein in the Vegetable Kingdom." Native of the Andes and Machu Picchu, Quinoa (KEEN-wah) dates back more than 5,000 years (called "the mother grain" by the ancient Incas). To Indian natives of the Andes Mountains in Peru and Bolivia, Quinoa seeds were more valuable than gold. Considered sacred, believing the Quinoa grain was a gift from the gods containing spiritual enhancing qualities, Quinoa is a highly nutritious supergrain supplying us with all of the body's requirements.
Quinoa Gold beverages has successfully designed and patented a process for extracting the nutrients and vitamins from within the Quinoa grain that enable our unique Quinoa beverage to be classified as a complete protein.
Quinoa Gold beverages contain all nine essential amino acids necessary for life. It is rich in iron manganese, magnesium, carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Some wheats come close to matching Quinoa's protein content, but cereals such as barley, corn, and rice generally have less than half the protein of Quinoa. Rediscovered after centuries of obscurity, our formula is a culmination of several years of research and development with special attention and consideration directed at maintaining the all-natural qualities within the Quinoa grain.
Quinoa beverages are gluten-free and considered an ideal food for those prone to food allergies. Beneficial for people who cannot tolerate common grains like wheat, corn, rye, barley, and oats.
Quinoa Gold beverages are scheduled to launch nation wide in April 2007 in a supermarket near you. In the meantime, feel free to click on each label to get great nutritional information.
