So, what is % amaranth?

Amaranth is a gluten-free and nutrient-dense ancient grain that has been cultivated for thousands of years. It is a tiny, round seed that is high in protein, fiber, and minerals such as iron, magnesium, and calcium. Amaranth has a slightly nutty and earthy flavor and can be cooked as a grain, popped like popcorn, or ground into flour for use in baking. This versatile ingredient is a great addition to any diet and is particularly beneficial for vegetarians and vegans looking for plant-based sources of protein and essential nutrients. Its small size and nutritional profile make it a valuable ingredient for adding texture and depth of flavor to a variety of dishes.
