Description

Cultivated for 8,000 years and with more than 60 species, amaranth is high in iron and protein. It was a staple food for the Aztecs, and also used to make their ritual food and drinks. It is a cousin to quinoa, spinach and beets, and like quinoa, is actually a seed (pseudocereal), not a grain.

Organic Sprouted Amaranth is delightful as a creamy porridge and can also be used in grain bowls and as a topper for green salads. You can also incorporate cooked amaranth into your muffins and quick breads for added flavour and texture.

Nutrition Facts

Storage & Shelf Life

After sprouting, we carefully dry the grains back down to their shelf stable moisture levels. This means you can store them as you would store unsprouted whole grains – in a cool, dry place.

Once you cook your sprouted pulses, they should be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.

Shelf life: 2 years
