Quail are groups of small sized seed and insect eating birds in the same taxonomic family as pheasants. Often known as one of the best complete foods, eggs provide a complete amino acid profile including other essential nutrients necessary to ensure optimal health. Nature’s Variety has chosen to use a wide variety of eggs because each species has a slightly different amino acid and fatty acid profiles. Whole eggs, including the shells, are incorporated into our diets for additional natural calcium and to ensure a better and more complete nutrient profile.
Quinoa (pronounced key-no-wa) is a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium) grown primarily for its edible seeds. It is highly appreciated for its nutritional value, as it is one of the few plants that provide extremely high and complete amino acid content. It is also a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron. Quinoa is gluten free and considered easy to digest.
