This tiny-but-powerful super food is a high source of protein and is naturally gluten-free. But it also boasts some other impressive nutritional stats including a high lysine content.
Most grains like wheat are short on lysine, an amino acid, but that’s not the case for amaranth. This makes amaranth a complete protein, because it contains all the essential amino acids.
Like quinoa, amaranth is actually a seed not a grain.
Amaranth flakes are the natural seed, rolled for a myriad of applications.
From porridge, to biscuits and granola's, amaranth flakes offer a nutrient-rich profile with a light and mild nutty flavour.
