Buy Amaranth (ORGANIC)
Milled and blended in Hong Kong.
Amaranth is one of our new favorite grains to cook with. Just like the well-known quinoa, amaranth is highly packed with nutrients, proteins and fats compared to the average rice. Unlike most grains, amaranth is also extremely versatile: you can add to your breakfast cereals, you can use for porridge, you can substitute it in place of rice, and you can even powder and use its gelatinous properties to thicken soups and sauces. Regency organic amaranth hails from Peru, where we have a close connection to our farmers and ensure top quality, cleaned and selected grains at every batch. Also known as Amranth, Amaranthus.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
Love the chewy texture, definitely a must to go with quinoa! They mix well and double the nutrients (•‿•) Can't ask for more
I also like amaranth flour, nicer to use to thicken the stew, instead of flour or butter
Order black sesame and cumin all the time and satisfied.
