Organic Amaranth seed is an extremely nutritious grain. It is high in protein (15-18%) and contains lysine and methionine, two essential amino acids that are not frequently found in grains. It is high in fibre and contains calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, and vitamins A and C.
Often referred to as an ancient grain, Amaranth was a dietary staple of the pre-Columbian Aztec empire. This ancient civilization believed it had supernatural powers and incorporated it into their religious ceremonies. Lost for hundreds of years, this ancient crop underwent a revival in the sixties and has since been grown commercially from wild varieties.
