NatureCrops Quinoa Bars #Review

Tuesday, September 27, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Ever tried Quinoa? This grain has been around for over 5000 years, thriving at high altitudes in the Andes Mountains. The Incas considered it a sacred food. Quinoa was re-discovered in the 1970s and today, it's increasingly popular. Nowadays, you can find Quinoa in restaurants, grocery stores and even beverages.

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.

    Quinoa is one of my favorite grains to make. I like the black quinoa also. I never heard of NatureCrops Nutrition Bars but these would be wonderful to try, my daughter would love them.

    I have never tried quinoa before but it is something that I would like to try. I am seeing more and more people I know (and in general) using it so I am intrigued by it. Not sure that my family would go for it, but we'll see.

    I've never seen these, but I would like to try the Quinoa and Strawberry one! Quinoa is a great (and eating these bars would be easier than cooking it)!

    Quinoa is something I have heard so much about lately. I actually have never tasted it nor made it. It sounds like it would be pretty good since it is kind of rice like.
