    Ingredients

    Amaranth.

    Ground Amaranth comes from a tiny seed that packs more nutritional punch than many other grains, especially those in its gluten-free family. Boasting more protein than even its wheat counterpart, Amaranth is a great substitute in alternative diets. To top it off, this grain has a fresh corn-like aroma that also lends itself to step in for rice and potato based recipes. Dating back to the Aztec and Inca civilizations, Amaranth was a staple in diets and was believed to have supernatural powers, often incorporated into religious ceremonies. Today it is known as kiwicha in the Andes where it was first grown.

  • Dates back almost 8,000 years

  • Reintroduced to mainstream United States in 1970s

  • Can be planted to produce abundant, beautiful flowers
