There has been nearly 8,000 years of cultivation history of Amaranth. It was a staple food of the Aztecs.
Amaranth is a good source of dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals. It contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron. An important fact is that it doesn’t contain any gluten.
Scientific studies showed that amaranth has phytosterols, which have cholesterol-cutting properties. Therefore Amaranth is also good for our heart.
