Organic Whole Grain Amaranth 3.7 5 3 3
Expected much better I've been trying a few alternative to oat where I found buckwheat and I was very pleased with buckwheat so I figured I'll give other grains a shot. This product looked so promising, such good nutriment values but oh lord the taste... I was able to finish eating it but I won't finish the package nor try to eat it again. If you love amaranth though go ahead and buy this, the quality is good and it's organic. I think it taste like rhubarb, although it's been years since I had rhubarb so I could be mistaken.

Great value for amaranth better price than the store, if you can find it in the store... September 30, 2013
Versatile I thought quinoa was a great addition until I read the label and found the much higher protein content in amaranth, and I'm glad we tried it. It has a great mild taste similar to grits and cooks well. I ordered Bob's because it is certified g-free. July 12, 2013
