DetailsDiscover the whole grain goodness of amaranth. This tiny “grain”—actually a seed—has a rich history dating back 8,000 years, when it was first cultivated in Mesoamerica. The ancient Aztecs relied on amaranth as a food staple and used it in religious rituals, earning it the names “super grain of the Aztecs” and “golden grain of the gods.” In the 1500s, Spanish conquistadors attempted to outlaw amaranth in an effort to convert and control the Aztecs. Lucky for us, their efforts proved unsuccessful due to amaranth’s amazing ability to grow quickly and thrive in less-than-ideal soil, making it nearly impossible to extinguish. Our Organic Amaranth Flour is 100% stone ground and gluten free. It can be used to replace 25% of the flour in your own recipes and is great for gluten free baking when combined with another non-grain flour or starch. Amaranth is a gluten-free food and a source of complete protein—it contains all the essential amino acids, including lysine, which is lacking in most grains. High in fiber and a good source of magnesium and iron, Amaranth is a spectacular addition to your diet. This little powerhouse is perfect for gluten free and vegan diets. Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Amaranth Flour has a mild but distinct, slightly sweet, nutty, earthy and malt-like flavor. It’s a great way to enhance the flavor of baked goods, and it’s very easy to use. Simply substitute 1/4 of your recipe’s conventional flour with Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Amaranth Flour.

- Love this stuff!
- I love the great flavor it adds - I use it to make pancakes along with buckwheat and quinoa (1 cup each), which the whole extended family eats, not just my son. I use smaller amounts of it when making cakes and muffins because it can be a little too cakey, but 20-25% adds great flavor. Once you open the package, keep in fridge or freezer. Enjoy!
- Delicious and Nutty
- I have used this product twice now to bake delicious banana breads! It has a great nutty flavor and is easy to use. I was expecting the bread to come out flat but the texture was wonderful.
