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.

Details

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'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, 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.

Makes great waffles/pancakes
I use it this flour as follows: 1/2 cup amaranth, 1/2 cup white rice flour, 1/3 cup arrowroot starch, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1/4 tsp. salt. I make up several of these and place in separate baggies to store in fridge, then when ready to cook, add the dry mixture to two eggs, beaten, 1 cup milk or juice (or half of each), and 2 tsp. olive oil.

Amaranth and chia Blueberry muffins
I replaced 1/3 of my WW pastry flour with Bob's Amaranth flour and added in 1/2 cup of chia seeds. Wow! The flavor was complex and a nice crunch from the chia seeds. Best and healthiest blueberry muffins??

gummy
When adding only 1/4 c. amaranth flour to oatmeal whole wheat bread using a straight dough method with an enriched dough (contains sweetener (honey) & eggs) that had about 5 1/2 cups of total flour plus some cooked steel cut oats, it made the bread chewy. Great protein & vitamin content, but not a great effect on product quality.

not just for baking
I've been using this flour for thickening uncooked mixtures such as dips, or combine with flaked quinoa in water for a quick uncooked cereal (add things like nut butter or fruit sauce for variation. The uncooked amaranth flour does not have the raw taste that wheat flour has.

What is amount of protein in the Organic Amaranth Flour?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! Per 1/4 cup (30 grams) of dry flour there is 4 grams of protein.
I found an unopened amaranth flour from 2013 so is still good?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting us about this. "Sell by" and “Best by” dates are not an exact science but typically we recommend that customers enjoy our products within 6 months of the Sell by/Best by date as long as the product has been stored properly (air-tight container in a cool dry place.) It’s impossible for us to determine whether the product is still good without seeing it in person. Use your best judgement, but when in doubt – throw it out.

Quality. Integrity. Tradition.
