Ingredients: Organic Whole Raw Sprouted Amaranth
-Processed in a peanut-free, dairy-free, and soy-free facility
Amaranth has been used in diets around the world for thousands of years. Perhaps one of its most unique characteristics is that amaranth is one the most sustainable and easy to grow plants on earth. Amaranth seeds, like buckwheat and quinoa, contain protein that is unusually complete for a plant source, having a greater protein content than that of wheat. Unlike protein found in true grains, it is not the problematical type known as gluten.
Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in our nuts and seeds. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful nut or seed. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
FUN FACT! Amaranth is a nutritional power house. The name comes from the word amarantos, which in Greek means “everlasting” or “the never fading”.
Shelf life: One year if properly stored
Storage: Cool, dry, dark area. Amaranth can be refrigerated or frozen to extend freshness.
