RICHMOND, B.C. — Nature’s Path Organic Foods is introducing Qi’a (pronounced “key-ah”), a cereal that combines chia, hemp and buckwheat. The new cereal qualifies as an excellent source of ALA omega-3 fatty acids and a good source of fiber.

Qi’a comes in three flavors, apple cinnamon, cranberry vanilla and original, and is currently available in select health and natural foods retailers. The company said by February 2013 the product will be available in 90% of Whole Foods Markets nationwide.

Qi’a has a suggested retail price of $8.99.
