Discover the whole grain goodness of Amaranth. This tiny grain is actually a seed and has a rich history dating back 8,000 years when it was first cultivated in Mesoamerica. The ancient Aztecs relied on Amaranth as a food staple and used it in religious rituals, earning it the names “Super Grain of the Aztecs,” and, “Golden Grain of the Gods.” In the 1500’s, Spanish conquistadors attempted to outlaw Amaranth in an effort to convert and control the Aztecs. Lucky for us, their efforts proved unsuccessful due to Amaranth’s amazing ability to grow quickly and thrive in less-than-ideal soil, making it nearly impossible to extinguish.
