Glanbia Nutritionals brings new technology to ancient grains with the launch of next generation grain ingredients. Featuring naturally gluten-free chia, sorghum, amaranth and quinoa, Glanbia's speciality grain portfolio harnesses their long-recognised nutritional benefits to bring protein and fibre to bar and bakery applications. Available in crunchy popped, puffed and flake varieties, the new grains optimise texture and enhance flavour for a healthy and convenient eating experience.
Meeting consumer demand for natural and free-from products, Glanbia's new grain ingredients are gluten-free, Kosher and non-GMO. Drawing on the power of 'superfood' ancient grains, the speciality ingredients offer an easily digestible source of whole grain, protein, antioxidants and omega-3s.
Leading ancient grains firmly into the 21st century, Glanbia's new super-finely milled BevGrad[R] Chia brings this superseed up to date, expanding its applications and appealing to a modern audience. Chia seeds have a proven nutritional history, with uses dating back to 3,500 BC. Glanbia's BevGrad Chia delivers smooth texture, good dispersibility and minimal visual impact in ready-to-drink and ready-to-mix beverages. A great source of vegetarian ALA omega-3, fibre, protein and natural minerals, BevGrad Chia can also be used in breakfast cereals, bars and baked goods.
Glanbia's ChoiceQuinoa[TM] Puffed offers a unique soft yet crunchy texture and is rich in vitamins and minerals such as calcium. A whole grain, quinoa was first cultivated 5,000 years ago in South America's Andes Mountains. Containing all nine essential amino acids, Glanbia's gluten-free ingredient affords sensory and nutritional benefits to bar, cereal and cluster applications.
Glanbia whole grain ChoiceSorghum[TM] Popped ingredient brings sorghum to the modern world.
