What is it?

Full of whole grain goodness, Amaranth flour provides a unique nutritional profile reflective of the mother grain.

Amaranth flour is a smooth, ivory coloured flour with a pleasant, mild, slightly nutty flavour. This tiny grain is actually a seed and has a rich history dating back 8,000 years. Amaranth was a food staple of the ancient Aztecs who relied on it as a food staple and called it a 'super-grain'. 

What are the nutritional benefits?

High in fibre and a good source of magnesium and iron, Amaranth is a spectacular addition to your diet. This little powerhouse is perfect for gluten free and vegan diets. Amaranth is a gluten-free food as well as a source of complete proteins and contains all the essential amino acids, including lysine, which is lacking in most grains.  

What can I use it for?

It may be used alone or in combination with other flours in baking everything from cookies to muffins and cakes. It makes baked goods moister. It may also be used as a thickener in sauces, soups and other liquid-based dishes.  

Amaranth Flour has a mild but distinct, slightly sweet, nutty, earthy and malt-like flavor. It's a great way to enhance the flavor of baked goods, and it's very easy to use. Simply substitute 1/4 of your recipe's conventional flour with Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain Amaranth Flour.  Use it to replace 25% of the flour in your own recipes and is great for gluten free baking when combined with another non-grain flour or starch.

Anything important?

It is gluten-free, wheat-free and vegetarian. No chemical bleaching. No alcohol treatment. No additives. No anti-bacterial or anti-fungal agents. No bromate added.
