Healthy snacking: I Heart Keenwah
Innovative US snack brand I Heart Keenwah is now available in via PURE Naturals & Organics.
The range, launched into Ritchies IGA and Healthy Life stores, includes four flavours of quinoa puffs – aged cheddar, sea salt truffle, sweet chilli and herb.
Founders Ravi Jolly and Sarah Chalos wanted to make quinoa available in convenient snack packs to encourage consumers to make “healthy swaps”.
The company uses certified fair trade heirloom Royal Quinoa sustainably sourced from Bolivian small-holder farmers. The “heirloom seed” means its non-hybridized, non-commercially bred or non-GMO seed, with Bolivian farmers retaining 10 per cent of every year’s harvest to replant for next year’s season.
It’s suitable for people with allergies and three of the four products are vegan.
