Amaranth has long been known as a staple food, dating as far back as the Aztecs who used it in religious rituals. This tiny grain--which is actually a seed--is a source of protein, magnesium iron and dietary fiber. Amaranth can be used in porridge, polenta and quick breads, as well as a number of other recipes. It contains all the essential amino acids, including lysine. Bob's Red Mill Amaranth is gluten-free and USDA organic.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bland taste Nothing I look forward to eating. Wanted something different in my diet. This is a seed. May 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best! I have purchased this product and love it so much!! its so high quality delicious and so healthy! (no sand filling on teeth) Bob's red mill making the best products! Highly recommend it. Plus fast delivery. Thank u swansonvitamins i will continue to purchased more and more. September 17, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for amaranth better price than the store, if you can find it in the store... September 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
