Amaranth seed is an extremely nutritious grain, gluten free, high in protein (15-18%) and all eight essential amino acids, including lysine and methionine, not frequently found in grains.

It is a highly digestible nurturing food for people of all ages, especially recommended for the very active, vegetarians, vegans, children, and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

Amaranth grain can be used to thicken soups or casseroles. Amaranth is a smaller grain than Quinoa. They can both be mixed with rice and served combined. Also enjoy

Certified Organic - Amaranth Whole Grain (500g) by Ceres Organics 


 
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.

How to enjoy:
To cook, simmer 1 cup of amaranth in 2 1/2 cups of water for 18-25 minutes or until tender.
To enhance the flavour, add fresh herbs or ginger root or use half measures of water and stock or apple juice.

Ingredients: Certified Organic Amaranth Grain.

Store: In an airtight container in a cool, dry, dark cupboard.

Origin: Packed in New Zealand from South American grains
Certification: BioGro.
