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.


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 have had high cholesterol and triglycerides since 2012 - after adding one tablespoon to my yogurt every day - my cholesterol has dropped 20 points and my triglycerides went down from 306 to 105 - my doctor wanted to know my secret due to my great results - the Amaranth grain has done a great job - I highly recommend this to anyone struggling with these symptoms

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.

My favorite gluten free and old world grain! Very versatile! I use for porridge for breakfast or a base for hearty one pot meal instead of risotto and I also spread thin and bake for a great simple cracker without any additives unless I chose them - such as a sprinkle of sea salt & rosemary.
