Arrowhead Mills Organic Amaranth is a naturally gluten-free and nutritious pseudocereal (not technically a grain but a seed), packed with plant protein and fiber. It is also a great source of essential minerals like iron and phosphorus. In fact, one ¼ cup serving contains 20% of your daily iron intake (that’s twice the iron content of quinoa)! Arrowhead Mills Organic Amaranth has a slightly sweet, earthy, and nutty flavor, and retains a satisfying, crunchy bite when cooked. You can mix amaranth with other flours to make nutritious bread, muffins, or pancakes, or grind it to use as a gluten-free thickener in soups and sauces. It can also be combined with oats to make a wholesome breakfast porridge, or used as a base for a whole grain salad. Arrowhead Mills Organic Amaranth can also be served as a rice or couscous substitute, popped like popcorn, or sprouted like alfalfa! Arrowhead Mills is proudly committed to supporting local organic producers to use only regenerative, soil-enriching growing techniques. Its Organic Amaranth is 100% pure and pesticide-free, free from any chemicals or additives. Rich in protein, fiber, micronutrients, and antioxidants, this ancient super seed is the perfect addition to your plant-based diet.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Amaranth considered to be an Ancient Grain?
Unlike more common grains like wheat and rice, Ancient Grains are a group of grains and pseudocereals that have not been drastically altered by selective breeding and intensive farming. Ancient grains are very similar in genetic makeup, flavor, and nutritional value to what our ancestors would have eaten centuries ago. They are generally grown on farms with greater crop diversity, more rotation, and better soil health, rather than one single environmentally damaging mega-crop. Grown on small organic farms and certified non-GMO, Arrowhead Mills Organic Amaranth is just like the amaranth that was a staple food in the diets of the Aztec, Inca, and Maya civilizations.
