About Amaranth

Amaranth grains were once considered a staple food in the Inca, Maya and Aztec civilisations. It is classified as a pseudocereal, 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 flavour works well in a variety of dishes including with Bennetto dark chocolate and added sea salt. This nutritious grain is naturally gluten-free and rich in protein, fiber, micronutrients and antioxidants.
