Living Tree Community Foods raw, alive and organic amaranth are beautiful tan seeds and high in protein (15-18%). They are a great addition to your diet if you're looking for something new and highly nutritious.
The fiber content of amaranth is three times that of wheat and its iron content, five times more than wheat. It contains two times more calcium than milk. Using amaranth in combination with wheat, corn or brown rice results in a complete protein as high in food value as fish, red meat or poultry.
Organic amaranth has the highest lysine content of all the grains. Lysine is an amino acid not frequently found in grains. It is high in fiber and contains calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, and vitamins A and C.
The amaranth seeds have a unique quality in that the nutrients are concentrated in a natural “nutrient ring” that surrounds the center, which is the starch section. For this reason, the nutrients are protected during processing.
