Traditional Foods - Cereals - Amaranth
Hardy, healthful and wholesome, Amaranth is a super seed of immense nutritional virtue.
Originating from the Greek word, “Amarantus” which means, one that does not wither, it was first cultivated by the Aztecs 8000 years ago.
True to its name, it is a sturdy crop that prefers mountainous highlands, but can be grown across a variety of terrain.
Originally found in two centers of incredible spirituality on earth, the Andes and the Himalayas – it has been the staple food of many ancient cultures.
Not quite a cereal, but with a profile so similar that it has been dubbed a “pseudo-cereal,” this little seed packs a terrific punch!
Just one Amaranth plant can produce approximately 60,000 profoundly impactful little seeds, bursting with health and energy.
