    POPPED AMARANTH - Pure Food Essentials - Cert Org, Gluten Free, Vegan Friendly 

    Pure Food Essentials Popped Amaranth is 100% Popped Amaranth Grain, and nothing else - no added sugars, fats, salt etc.

    Amaranth has one of the highest levels of protein of any grain and contains significantly high quantities of all eight essential amino acids.

    Puffed Amaranth is a nutritious, whole grain, gluten-free product high in quality protein, dietary fibre, polyunsaturates, Omega 3 fatty acids and a variety of vitamins and minerals including iron and calcium. Puffed Amaranth is a uniformly puffed white seed, likened to a micro-popcorn, which maintains its identity through typical processing. It also contains substantial dietary fibre, and has no cholesterol.

    The Aztecs and Incas have for centuries honoured the rich nutritional benefits of amaranth because it gave them amazing strength and sustenance. Indeed these little wonder seeds are high in minerals, fibre and proteins with an amino acids profile perfect for the human body. Amaranth is a rich source of all essential amino acids, in particular lysine. Amaranth is suitable for those avoiding gluten or seeking a safe source of vegetable protein. It is a highly digestible nurturing food for people of all ages, especially recommended for the very active, vegetarians, vegans, children, and pregnant and breastfeeding women. Puffed Amaranth is perfect as an instant breakfast cereal on its own or mixed with other cereals to improve nutritional profile.  

    Puffed Amaranth has a unique, mild-toasted flavor and “soft crunch” texture that adds character, essential fibre, protein and vitamins to variety breads, cookies, cereals, stuffing, snacks and breading as well as other baked, stove-top, frozen, microwave, fried and extruded products. It is a natural additive, which gives foods a distinctive, nutty, slightly toasty, sweet flavor and also enhances the natural goodness of other ingredients through synergistic effects.

    Eat on its own, add it to healthy choice baked foods, use it instead of bread crumbs or sprinkle on top of your favourite cereal.
