There are grains, and then there's Amaranth. Along with buckwheat and quinoa, NOW Amaranth is one of the few plant sources to offer a complete set of amino acids, making it a rare plant source of complete protein. It's naturally gluten-free and a good source of protein and fiber.

Organic Amaranth is perfect for making gluten-free pasta, but should be combined with other grains/flours for baked goods since it has no gluten and will not rise on its own. NOW Amaranth has a mild flavor that's both sweet and nutty, and it's a popular addition to many vegetarian recipes.
