Amaranth was a dietary staple of the pre-Columbian Aztec empire, who believed it had supernatural powers and incorporated it into their religious ceremonies. 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!
Amaranth is a great breakfast staple with a sweetness and porridge consistency or add to soups and stews.
