Wholesale Alternative Grain Nutraceutical Ingredient Solutions

 

Why bother using the same tired grains for your product as before? Give your consumers a new something new to rave about with Ecuadorian Rainforest’s Alternative Grains. These ingredients can offer much to work with. They may add a nutritional boost to your product that will nab the attention of customers and separate it from the rest of the pack. 

Alternative grains are known for their nutritional profile, which separates them from all-purpose flour. Using these ingredients in place of more common grains can add vitamins and minerals to your formulation. Need some examples?

Take a look at quinoa, a very popular alternative grain. Long a favorite in South American countries, the world caught on that quinoa may help them meet their nutritional goals. Quinoa is a favorite vegetarian source of protein, with one-half cup of cooked quinoa containing up to 4 grams of the nutrient. Quinoa also has a great balance of essential amino acids and omega-6 fatty acids.

Want to try a  more exotic alternative grain? Take a look at amaranth. Amaranth has been in existence for up to 8,000 years and sought after because of what it can offer in terms of nutrition. Amaranth may contain a large amount of protein along with amino acids such as lysine, methionine, and cysteine. Amaranth also contains a good amount of fiber, calcium, and magnesium. 

Consumers are clamoring for alternative grains and have caused steady growth in the category. Ancient grains--also considered alternative grains--are just one of the success stories. Sales of products containing ancient grains have grown at a rate of  about 16.6 percent per year over the last few years, according to a report from SPINS.1 This uptick may be attributed to consumers being more aware of what alternative grains can offer them in terms of nutrition, taste, and more.
