However, the mass attention tends to foreign brands as their sheer visibility in the Indian market space has made people forget about the traditional resources of rich nutrients such as berries, amla, flax and pumpkin seeds. The fitness enthusiasts or any health conscious individual look for dietary options that is easy to accommodate in daily food habit. But the existing superfoods in the market are mostly expensive making it bit difficult for people to a large extent to include them in their diets. Hence, Agrophilia has taken the initiative to bring in quinoa seeds and a wide range of other superfoods including Indian traditional ones that fit to the budget of people of the country and provide a great deal of nutrients. Agrophilia is the first ever Indian superfood label that offers quinoa of superlative quality with cost competitiveness.
Agrophilia motto is to include nutrient dense foods, otherwise called superfoods in the daily diet of every Indian household. They offer a range of superfoods along with quinoa including chia, sunflower, flax, basil and pumpkin seeds. Each of them is a very rich source of proteins and essential acids that human body is incapable of producing.
