I didn’t make it to the Natural Foods Expo in Boston this year, but the folks from the Whole Grains Council were scouting the convention center for all sorts of interesting new products made from whole grains.  Among them were Popgum, which is organic popped sorghum, and Inca Corn, a crunchy snack made of large kernel corn grown in the highland Andes.

I was enchanted by this photo on the Whole Grains Council blog and grew very nostalgic about my trip to Ecuador with Inca Organics a few years ago.  There I saw organic quinoa growing in all of these magnificent colors.  La Yapa Organics showed a variety of products made from fair-trade quinoa grown in Bolivia, including flakes, puffs, and pasta. Among other products, Nature’s Path showcased their latest gluten-free wholegrain, organic cereals:  Crunchy Vanilla Sunrise and Crunchy Maple Sunrise.  (I am currently in the process of developing some tasty GF recipes using these cereals “beyond the bowl” in cookies, pies, and cakes.
