Organic Amaranth 500g
What is amaranth
The grains, more precisely the seeds of Amaranth, formed the basis of the Inca and Aztec diets. They believed that she had supernatural powers. Unfortunately, its cultivation was banned by the Spanish conquistadors. Re-discovered in the 1960s thanks to the discovery of its wild-growing varieties. To this day, it is gaining more and more popularity around the world.
Why is it worth using amaranth seeds regularly in our kitchen
Amaranth is an extremely rich source of protein (up to 30% more than in other grains), fiber, calcium and minerals. It does not contain gluten. It is easily digestible, so it is especially recommended for active people, vegetarians as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women. It contains exogenous amino acids that our body is unable to produce on its own, as well as lysine and methionine, which are not found in too many grains known to man.
A proven and simple way to prepare amaranth
Amaranth can be prepared in exactly the same way as rice. When cooked, it has a sticky, fluffy texture. The taste is mild, sweet and slightly nutty. Versatile to use. It can be used hot and cold, in the form of cookies, for savory and sweet dishes. Store in a tightly closed container, preferably a glass jar, in a cool, dark and dry place
Rinse the beans thoroughly. Pour 1 cup of beans into boiling water (625 ml) and simmer, covered, for 25 minutes. It should absorb all the water.
