Arrowhead Mills Organic Whole Grain Amaranth -- 1 lb
Essential for good gluten free bread
A generous amount of Amaranth flour is essential to making good gluten free bread. The grain is cheaper than the flour and a VitaMix makes flour of it in short order. Amaranth is an extremely nourishing flour and has been used for generations to provide protein in the diet.

Delicious as whole grain cereal
I cook amaranth on the stove top and add coconut milk to make an easy and delicious (and warm in the winter) whole grain cereal. Sometimes I cook quinoa or steel cuts oats with the amaranth for a whole grain cereal variety. I no longer eat any of the processed cereals that come in a box in the grocery store after finding this product. Vitacost has been very reliable with shipping orders accurately and promptly and with maintaining customer satisfaction.

good product, questionable directions?
This is a fine quality product, the only reason I gave it only 4 stars is because I think the directions on the back are a misprint. I couldn't figure out why my amaranth always came out like a goopy and runny soup even though I followed the directions "to a t". Then I asked the advice of a friend on facebook and she gave me a recipe that uses 2/3s less the amount of water than it says on this package. So that is something they need to take a look at. They might be turning off a lot of people to amaranth altogether by this misprint! I.e. someone who has never had it before and makes it according to the directions on this package is going to be really disappointed...

Excellent grain, high in protein and fiber. Great way to start the morning. I like it as grits with just a little sea salt. Prompt service.
