Organic Amaranth (1 Pound Bag)
The common name for this seed is “amaranth grain,” although it is definitely not a grain! Use amaranth just as you would use quinoa, millet or other grain-replacing seeds. It’s a fine replacement for rice, with a slightly richer flavor, although amaranth does not fluff well—when fully cooked in liquid, it has a consistency that’s closer to a thick porridge than to mounded rice. In fact, in addition to your main courses, you might find amaranth to be a superior breakfast food, especially when boiled in a mixture of water and apple or pear juice and served with fresh butter and honey. But amaranth is most popular for its ability to replace some or all of the wheat in one’s diet, or at least to augment the nutrient profile, since amaranth contains essential amino acids (particularly lysine and methionine) that are missing in grains. Amaranth is also extremely nutrient dense—high in protein, fiber, minerals and vitamins, making it a “superfood” that can help form the foundation of a healthy diet. Buying bulk amaranth makes sense, as the seeds can be used in many cooking situations and are easily ground into flour. And best of all, the more bulk Organic Amaranth you buy from NutsinBulk, the lower the price!
