So, what is puffed amaranth?

Puffed amaranth is a gluten-free and nutrient-dense ingredient made by heating the tiny amaranth seeds until they pop like miniature popcorn. These delicate, crispy morsels have a nutty, slightly sweet flavor that adds a unique texture and taste to a variety of dishes. Packed with protein, fiber, and essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, and magnesium, puffed amaranth is a healthy addition to breakfast cereals, snack bars, salads, and baked goods. Its light and airy texture make it an excellent alternative to rice or quinoa for those seeking a low-calorie, high-nutrient option.
