About

Amaranth is a gluten free grain, which I stumbled upon quite by accident. I knew nothing about Amaranth-- I had never even heard of it before. So, I did what any self respecting person would do and I googled it (after I bought it and took it home that is). It is a tiny grain, which I assumed would fluff up like couscous, but it doesn't-- in fact it goes sticky-- so it would also be perfect as a breakfast porridge.
