So, what is amarant?

Amaranth is a gluten-free, nutrient-dense pseudo-grain that has been cultivated for thousands of years. Its tiny, ivory-colored seeds have a nutty flavor and a slightly crunchy texture. Unlike most grains, amaranth is a good source of complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids. It is also high in fiber, iron, calcium, and magnesium, making it a great choice for vegans, vegetarians, and those with gluten intolerance. Amaranth can be boiled like rice, popped like popcorn, or ground into flour for baking. Its versatility and health benefits make it a popular ingredient in many cuisines around the world.
