Amaranth Flour is a source of complete protein containing all the essential amino acids and is particularly high in lysine. It is also a good source of magnesium and iron, and is high in dietary fibre.
Amaranth Superfine Flour is high in fibre providing over 9g of fibre per 100g and low in saturated fat and salt. Amaranth Superfine Flour provides 15% protein which will contribute to the growth and maintenance of lean mass.

I don't tolerate wheat well (....or dairy...) so I'm always on the look-out for good alternatives. When I saw this on MP and saw that for a grain it has a high protein content, I thought - I'll try that! First off, it doesn't behave, act or taste like wheat flour. Don't go thinking cakes or pastries with this stuff. After some experimentation I found that it DOES make a very passable flatbread with a couple of provisos. Amaranth has an earthy taste. It may or may not suit your palate, to be honest I'm not overly bothered by it, having had to get used to alternatives for my diet. So to the flatbread. One scoop of amaranth, add some dry herbs or spices to it - whatever takes your fancy (I like chili, garlic and pepper) then add enough water to make a paste. Smoosh (technical term) into an oiled hot pan, shape into a flatbread with more smooshing, wait til the underside is a golden colour, flip and repeat. The flatbread won't act like pitta either so don't try to stuff it once cooked. One scoop makes one flatbread. It might work well in a flapjack scenario with oats, but that will take some experimentation. I hope this has given you some ideas. Well done to MP for sourcing this and making it available, I will definitely be making this a regular part of my diet.Goes Well With:Salmon, chicken, chili beef strips, curries.
It's hard to say something on this specific product- it is simply good quality amaranth flour. Great high protein heavy flour for gluten free baking or just a good addition to make traditional baking a little more health and interesting. Goes Well With:Gluten free baking
