Bobs Red Mill Amaranth Flour 22oz

Product Description Discover the whole grain goodness of amaranth. This tiny "Grain"-actually a seed-has a rich history dating back 8, 000 years, when it was first cultivated in mesoamerica. The ancient aztecs relied on amaranth as a food staple and used it in religious rituals, earning it the names "super grain of the aztecs" and "golden grain of the gods". In the 1500s, spanish conquistadors attempted to outlaw amaranth in an effort to convert and control the aztecs. Lucky for us, their efforts proved unsuccessful due to amaranths amazing ability to grow quickly and thrive in less-than-ideal soil, making it nearly impossible to extinguish. Our organic amaranth flour is 100 percent stone ground and gluten free. It can be used to replace 25 percent of the flour in your own recipes and is great for gluten free baking when combined with another non-grain flour or starch.
