Behind the scenes

About Paktli

PAKTLI means JOY in Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, one of the ancient cultures that revered amaranth. They knew all of amaranth's nutritional wonders, used it as a staple of their diets, and for their ceremonies. Amaranth almost became extinct when the Aztecs were conquered, but it has come back into popularity now that it has been named "crop of the future”. I grew up in Mexico eating ALEGRIAS (which also means JOY!), a snack dating to the 16th century made from puffed amaranth and honey or chocolate. PAKTLI is my version of the ancient Mexican alegrias.

All Organic

I use puffed amaranth plus puffed quinoa and millet, highly nutritious ancient grains that are also considered superfoods. I mix the grains with high quality organic ingredients including chocolates, blue agave syrup, and whole dried fruits and nuts. Never any additives. Always preservative free. I hope you enjoy and that your days are filled with PAKTLI. -Seena Chriti
