Amaranth grain is also known for its cholesterol-lowering properties, reducing “bad” LDL cholesterol while increasing “good” HDL cholesterol.

FAQs

What does it taste like?

It has neutral and nutty undertones. Amaranth is also very similar to spinach in taste.

Do I need to soak Amaranth before I cook it?

Soaking grains is recommended for health reasons. Soaking breaks up the phytic acid on the outer layer of the grain. Less phytic acid means easier digestion and more nutrients absorbed.
