Just like quinoa and buckwheat, this pseudo-cereal (it means it’s not a grain, but a seed!) is good for your digestive system and blood sugar levels:
🔻high in protein (15% on average)
🔻high in nutrients (magnesium, iron, calcium, zinc…)
🔻high in fibres
Traditionally grown in Latin America like quinoa, its cooking process takes longer, making it less popular and less harmful for the local economics and social balance. It can be pop just like pop-corn (even buy it popped and ready to eat!) and is lovely in a milk bowl!
💡 Advice: Adding amaranth to your diet is good for you, but if you’re more comfortable with consuming local products, ask your in stores, they may have locally-grown amaranth just like here in Switzerland!
