100% organic, made from naturally grown amaranth and duly certified. Organic Amaranth Flour is gluten free flour that can be used to replace 25% of the flour in your own recipes. It is 100% stone ground and great for gluten free baking when combined with other flours and starch. It is especially high in the amino acid lysine, which is lacking in many grains. Amaranth is higher in minerals, such as calcium, iron, phosphorous, and carotenoids, than most vegetables. It has truly remarkable protein content: cup for cup, 28.1 grams of protein compared to the 26.3 grams in oats and 13.1 grams in rice. Amaranth is a great source of lysine, an important amino acid with protein content comparable to that of milk, more easily digested; neither can be said of other grains. To support this positive aspect of amaranth, it also contains primary proteins called albumin and globulins, which, in comparison with the prolamins in wheat, are more soluble and digestible.
