Everything at a glance
Amaranth is a perennial food that belongs to the Amanthacae family. This is not a traditional grain, like millet or quinoa, but a gluten-free pseudo grain. In the Incan Empire, Amaranth became a valuable grain and was traded by the Aztecs almost as if it was made out of gold. Next to beans and corn, Amaranth was one of the main foods.
Today farming of Amaranth has increasingly expanded, as the demand for it in India and Latin America is continuously growing. Amaranth is known for its nutty flavour and gluten-free traits, hence it is a great addition to a gluten-free diet.

Why is the price fluctuating?Most annual product crops have an impact on the relationship between supply and demand in the market. In the event of a bad harvest, we must also pay a higher price for raw materials. Due to the strong impact of external factors such as wind, weather, climate and natural events on the harvest, we are refusing long-term cross-harvest contracts with our producers.
