Now Foods AMARANTH GRAIN ORGANIC 1LB

Amaranth is one of the few plant sources to offer a complete set of amino acids, making it a rare plant source of complete protein. It's naturally gluten-free and a good source of protein and fiber. It is perfect for gluten-free pasta, but should be combine with other grains/flours for baked goods since it has no gluten and will not rise on its own. Amaranth has a mild flavor that's both sweet and nutty, and it's a popular addition to many vegetarian recipes. The use of amaranth is also a great way to avoid common allergens like wheat, nuts, soy, dairy, eggs, and shellfish.

  • Organic Ancient Grain with A Sweet and Nutty Flavor
