Organic Amaranth is an extremely nutritious grain - it is gluten-free, high in iron, protein and has more fibre than wheat. The seeds are tan or light brown in colour and are a similar size to poppy seeds.

Amaranth has been touted as a super-grain, and the grain of the future. Amaranth was a dietary staple of the pre-Columbian Aztec empire, who believed it had supernatural powers and incorporated it into their religious ceremonies. This ancient crop was "lost" for hundreds of years, and only since the Sixties, following its rediscovery, has it been grown commercially from wild varieties found.

Amaranth seed is high in protein (15-18%) and contains lysine and methionine, two essential amino acids that are not frequently found in grains. It is high in fibre and contains calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, and vitamins A and C.

For something new, different and highly nutritious in your diet, try amaranth!
