Amaranth was a dietary staple of the pre-Columbian Aztec empire, who believed it had supernatural powers and incorporated it into their religious ceremonies. This ancient crop was "lost" for hundreds of years, and only since the Sixties, following its rediscovery, has it been grown commercially from wild varieties found.

Amaranth seed is high in protein (15-18%) and contains lysine and methionine, two essential amino acids that are not frequently found in grains. It is high in fibre and contains calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, and vitamins A and C. For something new, different and highly nutritious in your diet, try amaranth!

How to use:

Organic Amaranth is a versatile ingredient that can be added to soups, salads, stews, casseroles and even in desserts! Organic Amaranth has a crunchy texture and nutty flavour. It can be eaten as a side dish like pilaf or be the main ingredient in a main meal. To cook Amaranth add 6 cups of water to every one cup of Amaranth. Boil water for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, drain, rinse and enjoy!

Growing and Processing:

Organic amaranth grain is actually a seed which is gluten free.
