   Introduction

Amaranth has been cultivated as a grain for 8,000 years. The yield of grain amaranth is comparable to rice or maize. It was a staple food of the Aztecs, and was used as an integral part of Aztec religious ceremonies. The cultivation of amaranth was banned by the conquistadores upon their conquest of the Aztec nation. Amaranth grain can also be used to extract amaranth oil particularly valued pressed seed oil with many commercial uses.


   Description

 

Amaranth, like Quinoa, is referred to as a grain, because of its taste and the way we cook it as a grain, but it is actually a seed. Amaranth is a highly nutritious grain, and is unusual in that it offers a complete form of vegetable protein. It is also a great source of dietary fiber, calcium and minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and manganese. Amaranth is a good source of all essential amino acids, in particular lysine, and has a strengthening, toning effect on the body. A gluten free food, amaranth is also easily digested, making it especially useful for very active people, vegetarians, and pregnant and breastfeeding women. Amaranth is often sold popped as an instant breakfast food, or ground into a highly nutritious, gluten free flour. (Amaranth has 8x more iron than wheat) Cooked Amaranth has a sticky texture that is quite different to the more fluffy texture of most grains we are familiar with. Care should be taken to ensure it is not overcooked, as it can become gummy. The flavor is mild, sweet and nutty, with quite a malty taste. It is a good food to cook for breakfast, and may be soaked and/or cooked in apple juice for variety, and sweetened to taste. It is also delicious in savory dishes.


   Usage of the Amaranth Popped
