AMARANTH

Amaranth is an excellent option for your first meal of the day, naturally gluten-free, amaranth makes a particularly good breakfast element as it takes on a porridge-like consistency when boiled, but there’s a whole host of creative ways you can cook with it. You can use it in any recipe that calls for quinoa, and even use it in place of risotto.

Our Amaranth seeds are cleaned, selected, and packed according to our client’s request.

Descripción

SCIENTIFIC NAME : AMARANTHUS CAUDATUS

The amaranth is a pseudo-cereal native from Peru which grows between 1,000 and 3,200m a.s.l. and is characterized by having all the essential amino acids that our body requires, mainly lysine. The seed has a high nutritional value and contains more than 13% protein.

This tiny-but-powerful food has some similarities to quinoa: both are good protein sources and are naturally gluten-free. But it also boasts some impressive nutritional stats of its own: besides from its protein and lysine content, Amaranth contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron. One cup of uncooked amaranth has 31 percent of the RDA for calcium, 14 percent for vitamin C, and a whopping 82 percent for iron. Finally, it is good for your heart as several studies have shown that amaranth could have cholesterol-lowering potential.

We can offer our amaranth seeds both in organic and conventional quality according to our client’s needs.
