Description

Amaranth is a gluten-free food and a source of complete protein—it contains all the essential amino acids, including lysine, which is lacking in most grains. High in fiber and a good source of magnesium and iron, Amaranth is a spectacular addition to your diet.

 

Interesting Facts

Cultivated by the Aztecs 8,000 years ago and still a native crop in Peru, the ancient History of amaranth can be traced to Mexico and the Yucatan Peninsula. Today, it's grown in Africa, India, China, Russia, throughout South America, and emerging once again in North America.

 

Nutritional Value

The protein contained in amaranth is of an unusually high quality, according to Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization (ECHO).The actual nutritional value of amaranth as human food is less than would be expected from raw amaranth grain data. At 105% of the daily value per serving, the manganese in amaranth is off the charts, yet it contains fewer carbohydrates.Amaranth contains more than three times the amount of calcium and it's also high in magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. Amaranth contains 6 to 10% oil, predominantly unsaturated, or around 77% unsaturated fatty acids, including linoleic acid, required for optimum nutrition. Not least in this list, amaranth is the only grain with documented vitamin C content.

 

Health Benefits

One reason amaranth is emerging into the fore front among grains is because of its remarkable nutrition. It's higher in minerals, such as calcium, iron, phosphorous, and carotenoids, than most vegetables. It has truly remarkable protein content: cup for cup, 28.1 grams of protein compared to the 26.3 grams in oats and 13.1 grams in rice.
