Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet it’s often a challenge to fuel up the right way. Most conventional cereals are highly processed and contain ingredients with minimal nutritional value but loads of additives and artificial flavours.
The good news is there is now a healthy alternative: quinoa-rice cereals. Together, quinoa and rice are a nutrition powerhouse. For starters, they combine to deliver the perfect protein, complete with all the essential amino acids. Add to that an array of nutrients including dietary fibre, iron, copper, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, selenium, B vitamins, vitamin D and complex carbohydrates. They are a veritable source of pure energy to power up a busy day.
Quinoa and rice are also compatible in every way. Both are wheat-free, gluten-free, vegan and easy to digest, which makes their combination an ideal choice for those with dietary sensitivities.
This amazing nutrition profile comes as no surprise, given quinoa’s status as a “super-grain”. It once sustained the great Inca civilisation and is recognised the world over as a superfood.
Brown rice, on the other hand, is known for its healthful goodness, having sustained more than half of humankind for millennia.
And there’s more good news – Ceres Organics has just introduced four delicious quinoa-rice cereals.
The Ancient Grain Puffs and Mighty Crunch are targeted to adults, while the KEENWAH Super Pops and KEENWAH Mighty Crunch are targeted to children of all ages.
Like all other Ceres Organics products, these new quinoa-rice cereals are made only of the finest certified organic ingredients. NO artificial ingredients, additives and chemicals have been used in the process. You can actually taste their wholesome goodness!

Rightly so, because each of their wonderful products is ethically sourced only from growers that have passed the stringent organic standards of growing, harvesting and processing. NO artificial ingredients or chemical additives are involved. And as an assurance, each Ceres Organics product bears the BioGro mark, attesting to its certified organic status. The result is nutritionally intact, wholesome products offering the very best of nature’s goodness, and nothing else!
LEGEND OF KEENWAH
It is said that at the time of the great fires, every quinoa plant in the Altiplanos was scorched to ash and the fields turned black and barren, leaving the people hungry. So the sun god, Inti, moulded a boy warrior from the hot embers of the quinoa plants. In his left hand he placed a branch of quinoa teeming with seeds and in the other a shield to protect against the flames.
The young warrior, who became known as Keenwah, dashed across the plains swirling the quinoa branch, spreading the seeds so that once again the land became fertile and bountiful.
