Amaranth was a staple in the diet of pre-Columbian Aztecs who believed it to be endowed with supernatural powers that provided them with great strength. Homeopathic and Ayurvedic experts have long recognised the amazing health benefits of this superfood. Amaranth is a complete protein superhero, rich in lysine which helps the body absorb calcium and convert fatty acids into energy.

Amaranth is naturally gluten-free, making it an excellent alternative for those with gluten intolerance. This tiny grain with a mild nutty flavour is well suited to adding to soups, stews and casseroles. It can also be popped, just like popcorn, to produce a delightful, nutritious snack or added to cereals and salads.

How to use:

Amaranth can be used as an alternative for rice, couscous, or pasta, and can be used in soups, stews and casseroles. It can also be popped like popcorn to produce a deliciously nutritious snack, and can also be added to cereals and salads.

Once opened, store in a sealed container in a cool, dry place and keep away from direct sunlight.
