Know it better

With a soft and pleasant flavor and crunchy texture, amaranth is a superfood that has traveled through many generations, being part of the Inca’s diet before and being part of astronauts’ diets, today. Cultivated in the Andean mountains, the knowledge of its nutritious properties has been spreaded through several countries from America, Europe and Asia.

What can I do for you?

The main characteristic of amaranth is its high protein content, which far surpasses other cereals (18% vs. 10-14%). At the same time, it provides a great variety of amino acids to the body, emphasizing lysine; an essential amino acid that involves all the proteins in our body. Lysine is rarely found in plant foods and is very important in the development of the human brain.

It is also a great source of calcium, which provides twice the amount given by milk.

Ideal for
People who have a vegetarian or vegan diet.
