Amaranth has been touted as a miracle grain, a supergrain, and even the “grain of the future”.

With its earthy sweetness, is not a true grain but the seeds of a weedy plant enjoyed back to the times of the ancient Aztecs.

Amaranth is gluten-free, provides a good source of fiber and protein, and an excellent source of magnesium. It’s important to note, however, that amaranth is higher on the glycemic index than other grains.

Glycemic Index = 97
Glycemic Load = 21

Selecting and Storing Amaranth

Make sure that the package is tightly sealed and store amaranth like any grain, in an air tight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
