Silver Palate Creates Grain Berry Brand Cereals and more.

You may have heard the radio ads about new Silver Palate Grain Berry cereals, pancake and waffle mix, snack crackers and other foods. This new line is not just another brand of foods. Silver Palate research spent three years developing a new grain that contains more natural antioxidants than other grains, even more than other fruits and vegetables.  Even more than berries and wine. 

The name of the grain is high tannin sorghum. Sorghum is the fifth most popular grain in the world. It originated in Africa two thousand years ago where water was scarce and they needed a grain to feed their animals and themselves that would grow in arid soils and climate. There are many types of sorghum, mostly related to  color. The high-tannin variety was not popular with farmers since the cattle who were fed it did not gain much weight. Thus, it was ignored until now. The Silver Palate was not able to buy this grain since farmers did not wish to grow it. So we contracted with farmers in West Texas in dry soils and decorticated the grain (stripped off the outer layer which contained the bran, highest in fiber and highest in antioxidants.) So high, it was reported by the USDA as higher than other grains and fruits, vegetables, and berries. 

You can purchase Grain Berry Bran Flakes, Toasted Oat cereals in plain, Apple Cinnamon and Honey Nut varieties as well as Grain Berry Pancake Mix, Muffin Mix and two flavors of Crackers. Not only does Silver Palate's new Grain Berry foods offer you natural antioxidants, it offers  reduced sugars and sodium, making it a very healthy and delicious line of foods indeed.
