About Organic Amaranth Seeds

Amaranth (Amaranthus) has a colourful history, is highly nutritious, and the plant itself is extremely attractive and useful. Amaranth was a staple in the diets of pre-Colombian Aztecs, who believed it had supernatural powers and incorporated it into their religious ceremonies.

Amaranth can be cooked as a cereal, ground into flour, popped like popcorn, sprouted, or toasted. It is at its most nutritious however when cooked. Bring one part grain to two and a half parts water to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer for around 20 minutes or until all the water is absorbed and the grain is fluffy. It can then be used as an alternative to rice, pasta or cous cous. 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 more information on amaranth's nutrition and how to prepare it have a look at our How Do I Cook Amaranth article.

Find out about all the other bestselling grains in our range in our Real Foods Guide to Grains article.

Amaranth seed is high in protein (15-18%) and contains respectable amounts of lysine and methionine, two essential amino acids that are not frequently found in grains. It is high in fibre and contains calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, and vitamins A and C.

The fibre content of amaranth is three times that of wheat and its iron content, five times more than wheat. It contains two times more calcium than milk. Using amaranth in combination with wheat, corn or brown rice results in a complete protein as high in food value as fish, red meat or poultry.

Amaranth also contains tocotrienols (a form of vitamin E) which have cholesterol-loweri

Summary: Everyone loves stuffed bell peppers. They often look stunning and impressive, yet they are really easy to make : just halve the peppers, fill them with the tasty mixture of your choice, pop them in the oven, and there you have it.

They will be so sweet that you will not need to add any sweetener, or if you do, you will only need a little. You can make your own popped cereal from amaranth, quinoa or even canihua (also known as kaniwa or baby quinoa).
