Amaranth is a plant native of Central America. It is not truly a grain and therefore is naturally free of gluten.
Amaranth is rich in protein. Roughly 16% of amaranth proteins have a high biological value as they contain exceptional amounts of lysine, an essential amino acid. In fact, amaranth contains almost double the amount of lysine as most grains.
This plant is also an excellent source of fibre. Easily digestible, it is recommended for the diet of children and elderly people.
