List of Ingredients

Amaranth

 

Amaranth is a high-protein seed, rich in amino acids, and is higher in protein than other grains. This grain is considered gluten-free and a good alternative in a Celiac diet.
     
Amaranth is closely related to pigweed, spinach, beets, and other plants. The seed heads resemble corn tassels, only  bushier.  Amaranth seeds are tiny  and a golden to creamy tan color.
      
Amaranth can be cooked as a cereal, ground into flour, popped like popcorn, sprouted, or toasted.
       
Sprouting amaranth will increase the level of some of the nutrients and the sprouts can be used on sandwiches and in salads.
       
Amaranth has a "sticky" texture and care should be taken against overcooking to prevent it from becoming  "gummy."
       
Amaranth flavor is mild, sweet, nutty, and malt like.
