Although amaranth is considered a grain, it is actually a seed that is used like a grain. These are three facts why we love amaranth:
- It is one of the few carbs that contains all the essential amino acids, including lysine, making amaranth a great protein source.
- It is gluten free, making it ideal for those with a sensitive gut.
- Contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron.
