Quinoa is often called a ‘Super Grain’ because it is highly nutritious. It can supply all of the body's requirements: carbohydrates, good fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Quinoa is literally grown by hand and is 100% organic.
The NatureCrops Nutrition Bars are made of Quinoa, fruit and seeds. They come in three varieties: Quinoa and Almonds, Quinoa and Prunes, and Quinoa and Strawberry. Each bar has between 130 and 150 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein. They are gluten-free and contain no artificial flavors. The texture is grainy and chewy. The Quinoa bars have somewhat of an acquired taste that I enjoyed after the first few bites. Add a glass of juice or milk, and you get a nice satisfying snack - perfect for a quick bite on the go.
NatureCrops Quinoa bars are available online at The Gluten Free Mall and in most Whole Foods stores.
