Super Food Millet - Camano Island Mills

 

Our Super Food cereals contain ancient grains and seeds which are Nutrition Powerhouses

People are always on the lookout for the latest and greatest foods to help enhance their health and prevent risk of disease. The term “superfood” has captivated consumers and increased their interest in purchasing products touted as such.  The term has commonly been applied to foods that have significant health benefits because they contain high amounts of one or more beneficial nutrients (often phytonutrients such as antioxidants). Foods like blueberries, broccoli, and flaxseeds have been termed superfoods, and the latest foods to join this category are Canahua, Amaranth, Chia and Flax.

Basmati Rice

Basmati Rice is far preferable to any type of white rice.  While rice does contain some starch, the glycemic index for Basmati Rice is usually several points lower than other kinds of brown or white rice.  This means that a single serving of this rice is much less likely to cause a spike in blood sugar levels while still providing the consumer with the nutrients found in all types of rice.

Our Basmati Rice is 100% Certified Organic, Vegan, Non-GMO, Kosher and Gluten-Free.

Short Grain Brown Rice

Short Grain Brown Rice is a nutritious Whole Grain providing Carbohydrates, Fiber, Protein, B Vitamins and several Minerals.  According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s, or USDA’s, MyPyramid website, whole grains have many health benefits.  They reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, reduce constipation and help with weight management.  According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, 1 cup of cooked brown rice provides 44 g of carbohydrates in the form of starch and fiber.  Carbohydrates are an important fuel source for the body.

Our Brown Rice is 100% Certified Organic, Vegan, Non-GMO, Kosher and Gluten-Free.
