Organic Whole Amaranth
One of the smallest grains is amaranth which has a history that extends back to the ancient Aztec civilization. Like quinoa, the protein in amaranth has a good balance of essential amino acids resulting in a high biological value. Compared to many other grains, amaranth is higher in mineral content, most notably iron, zinc, and calcium. Since amaranth is naturally gluten free, it works well in multigrain blends for gluten free baking. When popped, amaranth makes an amazing addition to loaves of bread, cakes, and cookies.
