Amaranth is a highly nutritious and versatile grain that is a great addition to any healthy diet. It is a gluten-free ancient grain that is packed with essential nutrients like protein, fibre, and minerals like iron and magnesium. It is also a good source of antioxidants, which help to protect the body from damage caused by free radicals.

Some of the key health benefits of amaranth include its high protein content, which makes it an excellent choice for vegetarians and vegans. The high-quality protein in amaranth contains all the essential amino acids required for the human body, making amaranth a complete protein source. Additionally, it is also a good source of fibre which is essential for maintaining a healthy digestive system and may help lower cholesterol levels and control blood sugar levels.
