Keen One Quinoa Announces New Thai Coconut Curry Quinoa Cups

BOULDER, Colo.– Keen One Quinoa, a Colorado based organic quinoa products company, has announced the release of their new Thai Coconut Curry quick cooking quinoa cup. This much-anticipated, delectable flavor is available now on Amazon and on their official web store.

Keen One Quinoa promotes healthy living with their delicious brand of quinoa cups that are nutritious, convenient and certified organic compared to common meal cups on the market. The Thai Coconut Curry cup is made with organic quinoa and hemp with savory vegetables, pineapple, coconut milk and exotic spices. The cups are perfect for students and anyone with a health-minded busy schedule, and are currently available on Amazon in a 6-pack quantity with Prime delivery.

Founder Christopher Algea started Keen One Foods in 2007 as a college project, and quickly saw high-demand for their early products, which sold throughout many major retail stores. In 2017, Keen One launched their protein packed quinoa cups which can now be found on Amazon and at Rocky Mountain grocers including Whole Foods, Vitamin Cottage, Safeway and Kroger (King Soopers) along with major Universities like CU, CSU, Iowa, Wisconsin, Purdue, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State and many more.

There are 6 other popular quinoa cups available including Chipotle, Edamame Sushi, Garden Medley, Harissa Red Pepper, Jamaican Jerk and Pesto Pasta. All quinoa cups are certified organic, gluten-free and non-GMO. The quinoa used by Keen One Foods is sourced from Bolivia, and is sourced with fair trade practices working closely with three cooperative farming groups in the Altiplano outside of Challapata, Bolivia.

“This new Thai Coconut Curry cup is an instant favorite with our friends, family and loyal customers,” says founder Christopher Algea. “We are thankful that everyone from students to busy families appreciate our healthy quinoa cups and continue to spread the good word. My Dad in particular says it’s his favorite to date, and he is a die hard Chipotle fan!”

About Keen One Foods

Keen One Quinoa first sprouted in an unassuming classroom at the University of Colorado at Boulder Leeds School of Business in 2007. Tasked with a class project on new product development, founder Christopher Algea — a cash-strapped college student at the time — decided quinoa could be an affordable, nutritious option over the empty calories of typical dorm food. His classmates agreed and the seeds of the brand began to take root.

After graduating, Christopher’s passion for quinoa persisted. He and a few friends began experimenting with recipes and sold their goods at local farmer’s markets and small retailers. Their popularity skyrocketed, prompting Christopher to head to Bolivia in search of a source of par-cooked quinoa, which would help the small team keep up with demand — and keep the business afloat. On a double decker bus ride to Oruro, the heart of the Altiplano, Christopher met his quinoa match: a direct supplier of fair trade Organic Royal quinoa, which remains the primary source of quinoa for the brand to this day.
