Amaranth

Ziegler & Co. GmbH Naturprodukte makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Amaranth is a pseudo-cereal cultivated for thousands of years in South America. Due to its nutritional characteristics, it is well suited for alternative food applications and health oriented nutrition. The sweet, nutty flavor enriches the conventional segment of cereals. As the interest in specialty products for bread, muffins, pasta, muesli and snacks is growing, Amaranth is an attractive innovation suitable for all cooking and baking styles.

The grain has a protein content of 12 to 17 percent and a high content of the essential amino acid lysine, which can hardly be found in other cereals. The grain has a high fiber content and is low in saturated fats. Amaranth is rich in iron and calcium as well as other vitamins and minerals. Like Quinoa, Amaranth is suitable for a gluten-free diet.
