The term ‘superfood’ has become an oft used buzzword in the language of food and health. Superfoods are just that, foods that contain significantly higher quantities of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other health-boosting, anti-aging, disease-fighting goodies.

Each superfood product packs various nutrients with different health benefits associated with them. They offer consumers a substantially high amount of nutrients with the minimum intake of calories. They play an instrumental role in prolonging lifespan and minimising the risk of chronic diseases while contributing to a healthier diet.

‘The movement towards clean eating reflects a change in how consumers view food. Consumers are searching for nutritional information and equating diet with overall well-being,’ says Dean Miller, marketing manager, AGT Foods. ‘Consumers are digging deeper for information about the food they eat and are looking for foods that will improve their health.’

AGT Foods Africa processes and distributes seeds, grains, pulses, flours and spices for the food industry throughout South Africa. The company uses only clean ingredients, which are wholesome, environmentally friendly and non-GMO.

The following Superfoods will be launched under AGT Foods Africa:

  • Maca Root
  • Cacao powder and nibs
  • Camu camu powder
  • Baobab fruit powder
  • Black quinoa
  • Hemp hearts
  • Pearl couscous
