Organic Sprouted Amaranth (Amaranthus cruentus) is one of the smallest grains. It was one of the staple grains of the ancient Incas and is known as "kiwicha" in the Andes today. It’s a "super grain" meaning it has all the amino acids your body needs. Amaranth also makes an amazing addition to loaves of bread, cakes, and cookies when popped. Besides protein, amaranth grain provides a good source of dietary fiber, and minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and especially manganese.
Sprouting grains helps enhance the already existing nutrient properties of the grains. Some people even find that they are less allergic to sprouted versus traditional. Amaranth can be boiled, ground into flour or even popped! Shelf Life: Shelf Life: 6 months if stored in *optimal conditions in the original packaging. *(70 degrees in a dry place.)
