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.
