Simply7 Quinoa Chips

I have worked with Simply7 in the past and reviewed their entire line of chips back in March 2013 the review can be found HERE. We enjoyed every one of their flavors which came in Hummus, Lentil, and Pomegranate. Now they have added a new member to the Simply7 chip family call Quinoa Chips . What is Quinoa you may ask well let me tell you about it. Quinoa (/ˈkiːnwɑː/ or /kɨˈnoʊ.ə/, Spanish: quinua, from Quechua: kinwa), a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium), is a grain crop grown primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal, as it is not a member of the true grass family. As a chenopod, quinoa is closely related to species such as beetroots, spinach and tumbleweeds. It is high in protein, lacks gluten, and is tolerant of dry soil. Quinoa was important to the diet of pre-Columbian Andean civilizations. Quinoa has been called a superfood. Protein content is very high for a cereal/pseudo-cereal (14% by mass), yet not as high as most beans and legumes. Quinoa’s protein content per 100 calories is higher than brown rice, potatoes, barley and millet, but is less than wild rice and oats. Nutritional evaluations of Quinoa indicate that it is a source of complete protein. Furthermore, it is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron. Quinoa is also a source of calcium, and thus is useful for vegans and those who are lactose intolerant. Quinoa is gluten-free and considered easy to digest. Because of all these characteristics, Quinoa is being considered a possible crop in NASA’s Controlled Ecological Life Support System for long-duration human occupied spaceflights.  All of their  Quinoa Chip flavors are designed to deliver all the flavor and nutrients of the ancient super grain Quinoa and come in four flavors such as Sea Salt, Barbecue, Cheddar and Sour Cream & Onion. I will admit the Cheddar was my favorite hands down but, they were all good and husband favored the Barbecue. What makes them even better is that there is no greasy feeling or taste as they are baked. So no napkins will be needed unless your dipping your chips. So here is the fun part now YOU have the chance to try the new Quinoa line from Simply7! Just continue to read below on how to enter.

More information about Simply7:

Simply7 was created because of a distressing trend noticed in our local grocery stores: food made with ingredients that most people don’t recognize and can’t even pronounce. Over the years, we have learned to examine the nutritional content of foods (calories, fats, vitamins, etc.), so why do we not scrutinize the ingredient labels on our food as well? Go to your pantry and see if your favorite products pass this test: Can you name the natural source of each ingredient? Do you know what you are really eating? Can you pronounce the ingredients on the label? The idea behind Simply7 was born because many of my favorite foods did not pass this test (and I suspect that many of yours don’t either). Simply7 was created on the ideals to makes sure that every ingredient in their products is not only natural but is SIMPLE. You should be able to identify the raw vegetable, fruit, grain, or legume the ingredients in their products come from. You don’t have a place in my pantry for healthy products that taste like cardboard, so they don’t expect you to have to sacrifice taste either. Simply7 took these principles and established the 7 core standards that our company stands behind. Hence, their Simply7 name.
