Organic Ancient Grains Granola: Nature's Path Partners with Kirkland Signature
Nature's Path Organic Ancient Grains with Almonds is my absolute favorite granola! I discovered this product at Costco, only to also receive it as a product review too. Coupled with Greek yogurt, Ancient Grains is the perfect breakfast or afternoon snack.
The ancient grains in this excellent granola are:
-Spelt: Considered to be of prehistoric origin, spelt is an early form of wheat that contains notable amounts of iron, amino acids and fiber.
-Kamut Khorasan Wheat: Buttery wheat believed to be of Egyptian origin and kept alive by peasant farmers in Egypt and the Middle East. Kamut contains higher levels of lipids, amino acids and vitamins than durum wheat.
-Amaranth: This grain was so important to the Aztecs that Cortez, in an effort to destroy the Aztec culture, declared that anyone growing amaranth crops be put to death. Thanks to some seeds that were smuggled into Asia, you can enjoy its lively, peppery taste and high quality protein.
-Quinoa: Originally cultivated by native people of the Peruvian and Bolivian highlands, quinoa is known as a complete protein, including all the essential amino acids that our bodies can't make by themselves.
-Oats: Crushed grains of oats that have been rolled into flakes, these are an excellent source of iron, dietary fiber and thiamin.
Nature's Path is one of the few health food companies
that has stayed independent. At first, I was a little wary to see they had partnered with Kirkland, but this is not a corporate takeover. I am not in the least bit worried this partnership will degrade Nature's Path in any way, and it will make their organic products more accessible and affordable to the masses. I also really appreciate that Nature's Path shipped this product with eco-friendly packaging.
Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review be positive or negative.
