(K) Amaranth - 1 lb.
Ingredients: Organic amaranth
Cooking Suggestions: Organic Amaranth is higher in protein and calcium than milk, making it a favorite for mothers-to-be, infants, children or people who do hard physical labor or people wanting to gain weight. Cooked as a grain, it has a wild and woolly taste. It is used to thicken soups, or great "popped."
Quality Natural Organic Amaranth was domesticated more than 5,000 years ago in Mexico and was once the sacred food of the Aztecs. It was as important as corn until the conquering Spaniards forbid its cultivation. Amaranth is a relative to spinach and quinoa and is therefore also a member of the goosefoot family. It is very nutritious.
