I Heart Keenwah Launches the First Toasted Quinoa Hot Cereal on the Market

Chicago, IL (December 19, 2016) - I Heart Keenwah, makers of ready-to-eat healthy quinoa snacks, and boil-and-eat Toasted Quinoa, are introducing their 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 just two minutes, Toasted Quinoa Hot Cereal cooks creamier and more delicious than other hot cereals on the market, without the grassy, bitter aftertaste often found in quinoa cereals.   

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 9 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,” said 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.”   

 

Toasted Quinoa Hot Cereal can be purchased online from shop.iheartkeenwah.com or Amazon. The product will also debut on the shelf at Hy-Vee, Woodman’s Markets, King’s Food Markets, and Festival Foods in January 2017. To learn about I Heart Keenwah and their products, visit www.iheartkeenwah.com.
