What Is Amaranth?

Amaranth is a group of more than 60 different species of grains that have been cultivated for about 8,000 years.

These grains were once considered a staple food in the Inca, Maya and Aztec civilizations.

Amaranth is classified as a pseudo-cereal, meaning that it’s not technically a cereal grain like wheat or oats, but it shares a comparable set of nutrients and is used in similar ways. Its earthy, nutty flavor works well in a variety of dishes (Trusted Source).

Besides being incredibly versatile, this nutritious grain is naturally gluten-free and rich in protein, fiber, micro-nutrients and antioxidants.
