Amaranth Sprouts

About

Amaranth is an ancient pseudograin which has been used for millennia for its leaf and its seed. In the sprout world we generally use it as a seed, though it can be grown into Micro-Greens as well. We don't offer it as such because we find its flavor unpleasant. It is a very tasty sprout with a great texture - it sorta pops like popcorn when you bite down on it. It's a very tiny seed, which produces red-tinged sprouts whether you Soak it or not. You can toss some Amaranth Sprouts into or onto just about anything you eat. Their size is a great visual addition to any dish. Several studies have shown that Amaranth has a positive effect on a variety of ailments; hypertension, heart disease and cholesterol to name a few.
