Amaranth is a pseudocereal grain from the same family as quinoa, however, it is much smaller. Amaranth is distinctively known for its nutty flavor making it a popular choice for culinary use as a whole grain, green, microgreen, and sprout. You can find it available in both red and green leaf varieties that are tender and filled with flavor. If you are someone who has a health condition or diet restricting your intake of gluten, this is the grain for you. As it is gluten-free you can include it in most diets. You may also grind it into flour for use in baking and cooking.
