Keen-ohuhQueen-oah? It may be a funny word, but it’s a serious superfood. Quinoa, pronounced “keen-wah”, is an ancient grain packed with protein, fiber and calcium. Typically used in a variety of recipes including salads and hearty main dishes, Quinoa provides the perfect balance of all nine essential amino acids and is naturally gluten-free.  So it’s not hard to see why we thought it would make a great snack!

With it’s many wonderful nutritional benefits and light, nutty flavor, Quinoa is the perfect main ingredient for our newest line of Simply7 chips. “Quinoa is a natural fit with the 7 Standards we have at the heart of our all-natural snacks,” says Rashim Oberoi, President, Simply 7 Snacks. “And the natural flavor of quinoa is a beautiful match for the delicious flavors of sea salt, cheddar, barbeque and sour cream & onion.”  Our all new Simply7 Quinoa Chips are Gluten-Free Certified, Non-GMO Project Verified, Kosher, 140 calories or less and up to 50% less fat per serving.
