All About Amaranth

Ready to meet your new favorite food? Say hi to amaranth. Amaranth is one of the world's oldest superfoods, and was a major staple in the Aztec diet. You probably know its cousin, quinoa. Now it's time to get to know amaranth.

 

Considered an ancient grain, amaranth is actually a seed, so it's naturally gluten-free. It's delicious when popped and tastes like tiny little popcorn kernels. It has more protein than quinoa, and twice the protein of oats and whole wheat. It's one of the only plant-based foods that's a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids. And it has fiber, iron, and calcium to boot. We think it's the perfect food to snack on.

Now you know that amaranth is all-around awesome. And yet, we know you may have never tried it. That’s why we’re here: to bring amaranth into your life with Nth Degree Snacks.
