Amaranth – powerful health food!
Amaranth is a gluten-free and very nutritious plant.
Amaranth is native to Central America. More than 3,000 years ago, the cultured peoples of the region got their nutrition from the tiny little seeds of this beautiful, purple plant.
Amaranth has a unique nutrient composition and especially a protein with high biological value. For this reason, amaranth is also an interesting option in today's nutrition for vegetarians, athletes, and children. As gluten-free, amaranth brings an inspiring variation to the diet of people with celiac disease.
When amaranth is mixed with wheat, corn, or other cereals, the amino acids complement each other so that the protein combination almost ideally meets human needs. In addition, amaranth is a source of calcium and contains iron. The protein-rich amaranth tastes yummy and nutty. Amaranth can be germinated or roasted like popcorn into pop amaranth.
