Disrupts the Market as Nutrient Rich Power Food
January 27, 2016 – Santa Monica-based Native State Foods, maker of Purely Pinole, is proud to be at the forefront of a burgeoning new food movement: purple foods.
Experts at the 2016 Winter Fancy Foods Show in San Francisco last week named purple foods one of the top new trends taking the market by force. Purely Pinole, an ancient Aztec power food whose cornerstone ingredient is purple maize, is already seeing great response from consumers who recognize the rich nutrients found in purple foods.
Native State Foods is the first company to introduce pinole (pih-nole) to the U.S. through its Purely Pinole line of premium hot cereals.
“Although many Americans have heard of pinole from the New York Times bestseller Born to Run, and the story of the Tarahumara
Indians who rely on it to run hundreds of miles non-stop,” said Claudio Ochoa, company co-founder, “no premium pinole product has ever been available here in the U.S.”
Purely Pinole provides consumers long lasting energy and one-stop complete nutrition in every bowl.
“We took a look at the hot cereal category and knew that the space was ripe for opportunity,” states co-founder Angela Palmieri. “On the shelf you’ll find countless iterations of the same thing: oatmeal. Purely Pinole delivers superior functional nutrition (protein, fiber, whole grains, and powerful antioxidants in every bowl) with a distinctive, delicious taste that consumers love.”
The company also plans to debut a Purely Pinole Grab & Go Cup line at the show that meets consumer demand for convenience and on-the-go snacking.
