Quinoa has had a lot of attention as a 'superfood' over the last few years, but some companies are bringing a fresh take to the ancient grain - now in liquid form. That's right, a drinkable quinoa snack. If you're not a fan of the taste or texture of quinoa, this might just be the snack/drink you're looking for.
The new drinks blend quinoa with fruit and vegetable juices, resulting in something that's like a fortified smoothie. In addition to sweet fruit flavors like Strawberry, Blueberry and Apple, there's also some interesting savory flavors that include Split Peas, Carrots & Ginger, as well as Tomato - seen hitting the shelves in the US.
Top health benefits of quinoa:
- High content of manganese
- Rich in magnesium
- Contains almost twice as much fiber as most other grains
