What Is It?
If you are looking at an honest-to-goodness ALL-superfood breakfast cereal that is gluten-free, cane sugar free, dairy-free, made of non GMO ingredients, and high in whole grains & dietary fibre, you have got to try Nature’s Superfood’s one-of-a-kind Superfood Breakfast Cereal. It is a cereal that is made ENTIRELY of four wholesome Andean Superfoods – purple corn, quinoa, raw cacao nibs and yacon. NOTHING ELSE is added. The process of making this cereal is carefully crafted to preserve the nutrients of each superfood ingredient while making them more bio-available to the human body.
The first superfood ingredient is PURPLE CORN (whole grain). Grown in the Peruvian Andes, the Purple Corn with its beautifully deep purple kernels (purple foods are good for you!), is one of nature’s richest sources of anthocyanin antioxidants that help protect the heart, promote blood circulation, normalize high blood pressure, and improve cholesterol levels and diabetic conditions (by enhancing glucose metabolism). Purple Corn has higher antioxidant capacity than blueberries and other corn varieties, making it an exciting new superfood of our time. Purple Corn also has higher protein and fiber content than white or yellow corn.
The second superfood ingredient is the popular QUINOA Seed (whole grain), popularly known as the Mother of All Grains. A high-protein, high-fiber whole grain that contains all 9 essential amino acids (including lysine), B vitamins, folate, calcium, magnesium, a diverse array of antioxidants and many more nutrients. Daily consumption of Quinoa is a good way to reduce risks of such inflammation-related problems as diabetes, hypertension, etc. (including obesity).
Then comes RAW CACAO Nibs, of the premium criollo cacao bean variety. This is raw cocoa at its purest, and most non-processed and nutrient-dense state. Raw cacao is a feel-good superfood with lots of bliss nutrients (like PEA and anandamide), vitamins, minerals and high levels of heart-healthy flavonoids (that can be easily destroyed when processed into common chocolate). Raw Cacao lifts your mood, makes you feel energized, and protects your heart at the same time. The Raw Cacao Nibs in this cereal gives it a pleasant chocolatey taste.
Last but not least, we have the YACON ROOT Flour. Yacon Root is known for being a pre-biotic superfood that promotes digestion and colon health by stimulating the growth and function of “good” bacteria in the intestine. The addition of Yacon Root lends the cereal a natural and mild sweet tone.

Amid the bustle of city life such as in Singapore, eating out is sometimes an inevitable option. Too often, we are faced with unhealthy options and we have no choice.

Our Superfood Purple Corn-Quinoa Cereal makes one of the excellent, easy and fast breakfast choices you can have, without the ‘nasties’ of cane sugar, preservatives, wheat gluten, etc. that often appear on the back panels of commercial cereals.
2. Reduces Risk of Inflammation-Related Diseases like diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, etc.
It is known that consuming whole grains can reduce the risk of developing heart disease and diabetes, and helps you manage your weight as you get hungry less easily. Strong intake of protein and fiber are two dietary essentials for the regulation of blood sugar.

PURPLE CORN (whole grain). Very rich in phenolics and anthocyanin antioxidants (6 kinds of anthocyanin). Purple corn has higher antioxidants capacity than even blueberries. Much research has been done on Purple Corn, which grows in the harsh environment of the Peruvian Andes, and results have shown anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, anti-diabetes and anti-cancer benefits. A study, by Tsuda, published in the Journal of Nutrition (2003), for example, revealed the positive effects of purple corn in preventing obesity and diabetes in mice. Purple Corn also has higher protein and fiber content than other corn varieties like white or yellow corn..
QUINOA Seed (whole grain). A high-protein, high-fiber whole grain that contains all 9 essential amino acids (including lysine), B vitamins, folate, calcium, magnesium, a diverse array of antioxidants and many more nutrients. Quinoa is highly recommended as a great recovery food in fitness programs and in the sports circle. As mentioned by Daniel Fairbanks, Ph.D., a professor of plant and animal science at Brigham Young University, "Quinoa is a true wonder food. It has about twice the protein of regular cereal grains, fewer carbohydrates, and even a dose of healthy fats."
RAW CACAO Nibs. Known as the food of the gods, Raw Cacao is one of the highest antioxidant foods in the world, as affirmed by modern science. Rich in Flavonoids, Polyphenols, Magnesium, Sulfur, Good Fats, Minerals and Vitamins. Flavonoid antioxidants in cacao have significant benefits for your cardiovascular system. Raw Cacao contains high amounts of bliss nutrients that lift one’s mood for example PEA – the adrenal-related chemical that our bodies produce when we fall in love, and anandamide – an endorphin that the human body naturally produces after exercise.
YACON ROOT. Yacon Root (an Andean tuber) is known for being a pre-biotic superfood with very high content of FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides). FOS, a dietary fiber that is not metabolized by the body, stimulates the growth and function of “good” bacteria in the intestine – this helps promote a healthy, clean digestive track, and boosts the immune system.
