So, what is amaranto?

Amaranto, also known as amaranth, is a highly nutritious gluten-free seed that has been cultivated for centuries by the Aztecs and other indigenous cultures in South America. It has a unique nutty flavor and a versatile texture that can be used in a variety of dishes, from porridge to baked goods. Rich in protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, amaranto is considered a superfood that can help promote heart health, aid digestion, and boost the immune system. Its small size and high yield make it an eco-friendly and sustainable crop that is gaining popularity among health-conscious consumers and food enthusiasts alike.
