To Your Good Health® ~ Bob Moore
At Bob's Red Mill, we're always in search of new whole grain adventures, and heirloom grains like amaranth are more popular than ever. The ancient Aztecs relied on amaranth as a food staple and called it the "golden grain of the gods." Today, these "super grains" are prized for the delicious flavor and texture they add to cereal, side dishes, entrees and baked goods. Try them and you'll see!
To your good health,
