Along with buckwheat and quinoa, amaranth is one of the few plant sources to offer a complete set of amino acids, making it a rare plant source of complete protein. It's naturally gluten-free and a good source of fiber. Our organic amaranth has a mild flavor that's both sweet and nutty, and it’s perfect as a hot cereal or in baked goods and granola.

Cooking Instructions:

1 cup of NOW Real Food® Organic Amaranth
2 1/2 cups of water

  1. Rinse organic amaranth thoroughly under cold running water.
  2. Combine amaranth and water into a pot.
  3. Bring to a boil then cover with tight fitting lid.
