Why You Should Buy Amaranth Seed (Organic) - 10 oz

Amaranth contains tocotrienols (a form of vitamin E) which have cholesterol–lowering activity. Cooked amaranth is 90% digestible and because of this ease of digestion, it has traditionally been given to those recovering from an illness or ending a fasting period.

Amaranth consists of 6–10% oil, which is found mostly within the germ. The oil is predominantly unsaturated and is high in linoleic acid, which is important in nutrition.

Amaranth can be cooked as a cereal, ground into flour, popped like popcorn, sprouted, or toasted. The seeds can be cooked with other whole grains, added to stir–fry or to soups and stews as a nutrient dense thickening agent.

For long term storage, package them with oxygen absorbers in an air–tight container which should extend their storage life for several years if stored in a cool place

For those of you who are allergic to wheat, Amaranth can be your grain of choice. However, Amaranth contains no gluten and because of this, it's not good for making yeast breads by itself. Mixed with 75% wheat flour and 25% Amaranth flour, the resulting dough should give you a nice rising loaf of bread.

As Amaranth contains fairly high levels of poly–unsaturated fats, it's a good idea to store them in your refrigerator after opening the container. For long term storage, package them with oxygen absorbers in an air–tight container which should extend their storage life for several years if stored in a cool place. USDA – Organic
