Organic amaranth

Crunchy organic amaranth

Small and round, organic amaranth grain can be used from breakfast to dinner. Like tiny pearls, organic amaranth grain is a great topping for baked goods. Cream or black depending on the variety, organic amaranth grain brings a touch of originality to make products stand out from the crowd.

This distinctive character is further reinforced by its flavour. Incorporated into breads and biscuits, organic amaranth grain provides subtle, spicy, earthy notes.

Amaranth grain can be used in flour form for gluten-free formulations, especially to add texture.

Cooked amaranth grain can be combined with other cereals in dishes or delicatessen formulations.

Organic amaranth grain is ideal in mixtures, along with bulkier grains and flakes. In frozen desserts, organic amaranth grain can be used to create differentiating textures. These products take advantage of the variety of sizes, resistances, colours and flavours of their components. They also bring complementary nutritional values.

Amaranth grain,
a nutritional dynamo

Beyond its appearance, organic amaranth grain is a superfood. It has one of the highest nutritional potentials.

Organic amaranth grain shares a number of properties with cereals. Its absence of gluten places it in the pseudocereal category.

Organic amaranth grain has been shown to have a high complex carbohydrate content. Its low fat content, good carbohydrate ratio and fibre content are recommended as part of a diet to prevent diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, digestive problems, chronic renal failure and muscle pain.

Rich in protein, iron, calcium, magnesium and trace elements (manganese), organic amaranth grain is ideal to prevent certain bone diseases. Eating organic amaranth grain in combination with other cereals is also recommended for sports or vegetarian diets.

Finally, essential amino acids – in particular lysine – represent a significant proportion of the nutritional composition of organic amaranth grain.

Some interesting facts
about amaranth grain

Organic amaranth was cultivated by pre-Columbian civilisations, who ate its leaves and its grain. Like chia seeds, amaranth was sacred. It was used during religious ceremonies. The plant’s red flowers develop into ears which contain the grain.

Since it is now cultivated in France, like its cousin quinoa, we can now offer French- produced amaranth grain.
