Discover the whole grain goodness of amaranth, a staple food of the ancient Aztecs. 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. Makes a unique hot cereal or polenta. Add to baked goods or homemade granola for a pleasant texture and extra nutrition.

Details

Discover the whole grain goodness of amaranth. This tiny "grain" is actually a seed‚ with 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.
Amaranth is a gluten-free food and 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.
Amaranth has an earthy, nutty flavor and can be cooked and used in breads to give a boost of nutrition and a crunchy texture. Try popped amaranth for a unique breakfast cereal or to make the Mexican candy, Alegria. Amaranth can also be cooked as porridge, used to make polenta or added to soups.
If you like gardening, try planting a few amaranth seeds in your yard. The amaranth flower is truly breathtaking. Don't plant too many, however, or you may see your garden become an amaranth crop.

I’ve been eating amaranth for 6 years. I make it for breakfast as a hot cereal. I add a little honey, a pinch of salt and almond milk. I use to get it at the local market but they don’t carry it anymore so I ordered it. I love the product.

Delicious, fast, healthy, vegan breakfast amaranth!
This amaranth is incredible! I just became a plantbased vegan and replaced all my feta cheese, steam, and eggs needs with Bob’s Red Mill grains, seeds, and legumes.

This was one of the grains. I always had a chicken soup and now I was puzzled: what do I eat? So, I mixed a ton of veggies in a crockpot and added Bob’s amaranth... OMG! It’s so delicious and quick!

Today, I prepared amaranth in the rice cooker (1 cup of amaranth and 3 cups of water). At 6 am, I added cranberries, organic Ceylon cinnamon, grapes, mint leaves, flex seeds and chia seeds and sesame seeds I got from Bob, I also added a skiced orange, almonds, and walnuts, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. It took 5 min and my breakfast was delicious, healthy, beautiful, unique, fulfilling, and lasted 4.5 hours till I ate that soup I told you about earlier.

I highly recommend this amaranth!

I posted all my food on my Instagram and YouTube.

Great Tiny Grain
This was the first time we tried amaranth and the grains are so small. The flavor is a nutty one and they are great cooked alone or with other grains and vegetables.

Many unique uses
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.

I Love Amaranth! I can cook a pot and reheat for a few days as my morning porridge. It has a similar texture to Cream of Wheat and mild taste making it a great base for adding any herbs, veggies, sausages or whatever for a complete meal. It is great for any meal of the day providing good protein and satisfying feeling without bloat or heaviness. I have also made crackers with it by spreading the porridge out on parchment paper and baking in the oven.

I really love that this grain has lysine in it which helps to build muscle and absorb calcium more efficiently. It also helps to reduce inflammation. I’m excited to make a dairy free polenta with this grain. I also heard you can pop this like popcorn.

Do you have to wash first? And if so what is best way since grain is so small.
Nazare P on Mar 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! No, you do not need to wash/rinse the amaranth prior to cooking; however, if you would like to do this or have a recipe that requires soaking you could use a cheesecloth lined sieve.
Does it have to be cooked or can it just be sprinkled on foods?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! We recommend cooking the amaranth - it could then be served hot or cold.
Can you add the whole grain for bread machine bread?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can all the whole grains in your dough before baking though you may need to likewise adjust the amount of flour used.
Are your products grown in the USA?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Some of our products are from the USA. This product is sourced from India.
