Amaranth passes as low FODMAP!

Amaranth is an extremely nutritious grain. Not only is it an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin A, folate, manganese and calcium, but it is also gluten free AND low FODMAP at a serving size of 28g!

Why cook & eat amaranth?

Amaranth is undoubtedly a healthy and inexpensive alternative to ingredients used traditionally to make gluten-free products. The quantity and quality of protein found within amaranth is superior to those of wheat, making it an excellent low FODMAP alternative to wheat-containing breads. Its folic acid content is nearly three times the amount in wheat, and the fibre and mineral content is higher than those of other cereal grains.

The protein content of amaranth is also of high biological value, which means the body is able to use it efficiently once it gets digested and absorbed into the bloodstream, making its benefits numerous for those who suffer from gluten-related disorders, and the general population.

To top it off, amaranth also offers a range of phytochemicals that may help to reduce your risk of some cancers, help lower blood cholesterol, and reduce the amount of damaging free radicals in the body.
