Organic Amaranth Flour is gluten free flour that can be used to replace 25% of the flour in your own recipes. It is 100% stone ground and great for gluten free baking when combined with other flours and starch. It is especially high in the amino acid lysine, which is lacking in many grains.


Discover the whole grain goodness of Amaranth. This tiny grain is actually a seed and 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 1500's, 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 flour'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 as well as a source of complete protein‚ and 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, Gluten Free Amaranth Flour 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.

7 Reviews For "Organic Amaranth Grain"

  1. Many unique uses

    by Victoria on 07 Tue,2017


    I have grown to love this little grain. I made it into a cereal and also for a toasted salad dressing. They do tend to try and pop out of pan LOL. But the nutty flavor is a nice light flavor for summer meals. I use in breads, cereals, pancakes/waffles, tabbouleh, and anything else I can think of. You should really try this tiny grain and I think you will love its versatility.

  3. Impressive little grain & easy to cook

    by Country Vegan on 10 Tue,2014

    This is a great grain to use in a variety of dishes. I use an electric pressure cooker to make a batch without any fuss. Add 1 cup amaranth, 2 cups water, 1 tsp oil, set on high pressure for 6 minutes. This makes several bowls of warm cereal (consistancy is similiar to cream of wheat, but gluten free).

  4. Versatile & Delicious!

    by Bob's Red Mill on 01 Sun,2012

    As part of a health initiative, I began using whole grains about two years ago. The first time I had amaranth, I didn't care for it because of the texture... I found it a bit "grainy" for my taste. I learned that I could mix it with Oat Bran (I use 1 part Oat Bran to 2 parts amaranth) for a more cereal-like texture, and this works well. I season it with Vietnamese cinnamon, which has a stronger fl

  5. Amaranth Grains - Cereal & More

    by :dix) on 05 Sat,2011

    We had the Amaranth this morning for our morning cereal, I have always known of its health benefits and used it in years past for baking and loved it, however we had never tried it for a cereal before…matter of fact it was very good, one effect was shortly afterwards when we found the need to go to the bathroom. So I would imagine that anyone with constipation would benefit from eating this cere

  6. My experience with amaranth grain

    by Fannie on 04 Tue,2011

    Amaranth has a somewhat earthy aroma, a little like spinach. It can be used as a cooked breakfast cereal, plain or with some fruit cooked in (raisins, cut-up dates, dried cranberries etc.) It can also be used instead of other grain in a pilaf or casserole, for instance with beans, a bit of onion and garlic, some cut-up greens and some piccante sauce.||Amaranth needs slow cooking, and it cooks muc

  7. A unique experience

    by Happy on 04 Tue,2011

    I cooked it up using the basic cooking instructions. OK, I was expecting this to fluff up like rice. I was wrong! It clings together like steel cut oats. It also has the texture of the tiny little grains. The flavor is full and hearty, but with a porridge consistency. At first taste, I wasn't sure I liked it, as I never tasted anything like it before. After a few bites, I started enjoying the
