Benefits of amaranth flour
Amaranth flour is an ideal alternative to wheat flour for those of us that need a gluten free diet.
It is an extremely nutritious food, and an excellent source of fibre. and is one of the few vegetable plants that provides a complete protein, making it ideal for gluten free vegans and vegetarians.
Due to the fact that it provides twice as much calcium as milk, it is also ideal for a dairy free diet. In addition it supplies iron potassium, along with Vitamins A and D.
Amaranth flour can be kept for up to 6 months in a sealed container in the refrigerator. If it is not refrigerated, it can go rancid during prolonged storage, therefore, only buy as much as you can use in a short period of time.
