Tiny, toothsome amaranth grains are right at home in porridge, granola, desserts, and your favorite gluten-free recipes. And they’re so good for you!
Amaranth, unlike most grains, is a complete protein, boasting all nine essential amino acids. No other grain has more of the amino acid lysine, which is essential for calcium absorption and healthy muscles.
Amaranth is also an excellent source of manganese and calcium, minerals vital to bone health, and it’s a good source of iron, zinc, phosphorus, and magnesium. Even better, a healthy dose of fiber and unsaturated fat make it hearty, satisfying, and good for keeping blood sugar levels in check.
And it’s sprouted! Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) sprouting process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in this delicious ancient grain. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful product. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
FUN FACT! As early as 8,000 years ago, amaranth was a staple food for the Aztecs, who used it for everything from tortillas to a nutritious amaranth flour and honey drink. When the Spaniards invaded Aztec land, they outlawed the cultivation of amaranth, but the Aztecs continued the tradition of gathering and using wild amaranth-- that’s why we can still enjoy it today!
Shelf life: One year if properly stored
Storage: Cool, dry, dark area. Amaranth can be refrigerated or frozen to extend freshness.
