Andean Grain Products produces and supplies the highest-quality natural ingredients from the Andean region of South America including chia seeds, quinoa, maca powder, and other nutritious grains, seeds, roots and berries native to the area.
Andean Grain Products exports container-load volumes of its products in bulk directly from South America to customers across the globe, as well as supplying smaller volumes from its warehouses in Europe. With a key focus on the control and management of its supply chain, the company is able to supply ingredients that comply with or exceed the strictest quality standards and regulations.
In addition to supplying basic raw materials, Andean Grain Products' strength is in developing innovative value-added products using these materials as the foundation.
Recently added chia seed related products to the company's portfolio include EU Novel Food-certified Cold Pressed Chia Seed Oil, a light and pleasant-tasting oil that boasts approximately 65% omega-3 ALA. Related to this is the Partially Defatted Chia Flour, a high-protein gluten-free flour that can be incorporated into breads and other foods. The flour has numerous useful functional applications in the food industry due to its impressive water-holding capacity and can be used as a thickening agent or stabiliser. Andean Grain Products also now offers sterilised chia seeds, which use a steam-sterilisation process that minimises the microbiological levels of the product and ensures their safety.
Also newly offered in its line of wild-harvested freeze-dried Patagonian Superberry Powders are maqui berry, calafate berry, cassis and murta berry. In addition to their unique tastes, these berry powders are especially high in antioxidants due to the harsh conditions in which they grow.
