May 29, 2014

teechiaSanta Barbara Super Seeds, a division of Teeccino Caffé, is proud to announce it has received Non-GMO Project Verification for its new line of cereals, TeeChia Sustained Energy Cereal. In the cereal category, the majority of brands contain GMOs. Third party Verification by the Non-GMO Project is trusted by consumers. Some mass market cereal brands have self-affirmed the removal of GMOs but haven’t received the kind of response that they were hoping for. Pursuing verification via an external auditing process and certification is the latest testament to the company’s deep commitment to sustainability, organic agriculture and the non-GMO movement.

TeeChia is made from six organic super seeds, including chia, flax, quinoa, amaranth, ramón and pumpkin seeds, that are blended with certified gluten-free rolled oats and sweetened purely with fruit. The cereal offers a new approach to breakfast that is deliciously satisfying with no refined sugar. It is high in protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and provides 28g of whole grains. A bowl of TeeChia is easy to prepare in under one minute making it easy to eat it in the office or during travels. Offered in two delicious flavors, Cranberry Apple and Blueberry Date, TeeChia helps people stay energized and full all morning long.

The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization committed to preserving and building the non-GMO food supply, educating consumers and providing verified non-GMO choices.
