    why in the world didn’t you put this information on the outside of the package? Very annoying to have to go hunting for some basic info that should automatically be included.

      Hi Julie,
      The basic cooking instructions appear on the back label above the recipe for “Savory Amaranth Fritters.” We apologize for any confusion.

      Hi Shawn,
      We do not rinse our grains so that we can better control for mold in our facility. Since Amaranth is so small, if you rinse it you may want to use a colander lined with layers of cheesecloth or similar so you don’t lose any grains.
