Although amaranth has only recently become popular as a health food, this ancient grain has been a staple food ingredient in some parts of the world for thousands of years. It has an impressive nutritional profile.
Amaranth is a group of more than 60 different types of grain that have been cultivated for about 8,000 years. These grains were once considered a staple food in the Inca, Mayan and Aztec civilizations.
Amaranth is classified as a pseudo-grain, which means it's not technically a grain like wheat or oats, but it has a similar set of nutrients and is used in a similar way. Its earthy, nutty taste can be used well with a variety of dishes.
In addition to being incredibly versatile, this nutritious grain is naturally gluten-free and rich in protein, fiber, micronutrients and antioxidants.
Amaranth flour is made by grinding ripe, dry, peeled amaranth seeds into flour.
