The new Maypo Instant Maple Oatmeal with Quinoa is Non-GMO Project verified and combines maple-flavored, whole grain oatmeal with protein-rich, golden quinoa flakes. Quinoa, commonly mistaken as a cereal grass, is an ancient grain as well as a member of the same food family that contains spinach and Swiss chard. In addition to being a complete protein source, quinoa is a valuable source of certain healthy fats and is also rich in antioxidants.
