Ancient Aztecan Porridge Available for On-the-Go Eating
Native State Foods is the first company to introduce pinole to the U.S. through its Purely Pinole brand of breakfast and snacking products. The company is growing the brand with new Purely Pinole Grab & Go Snack Cups. The new line comes in Chocolate Mocha, Maqui Berry + Coconut + Almond, Berry Boost, and Brown Sugar + Cinnamon varieties. Simply add water, stir, microwave and eat.
Created by the Aztecs more than 500 years ago for energy and endurance, pinole is made from a rare variety of ancient purple maize, which is roasted for a rich, nutty flavor, along with chocolatey cacao and hints of cinnamon. A nutritional powerhouse, Purely Pinole is a great source of antioxidants, protein, fiber and whole grains in every serving, while also being non-GMO, gluten-free and low in sugar.
“We wanted to provide an option for our customers who have a busy lifestyle but also demand real food that is both nutritious and tasty,” says Angela Palmieri, co-founder of Native State Foods. “These cups are perfect for a quick power breakfast or a delicious snack.”
