Why You’ll Love It

Discover the whole grain goodness of amaranth. This tiny “grain”—actually a seed—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 1500s, 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

About This Brand

Bob's Red Mill

Bob’s Red Mill is on a mission to prove that not all grains are created equal. Their line offers an array of whole grain products that retain the nutrient content of unprocessed grains, while sticking with the old school way of milling. But while there are many endearing aspects of this family company (Bob and his wife Charlee being one of them), it is the brand’s desire to place the integrity of their product above all else that keeps us returning to Bob’s line of pantry staples time and time again.

You can count on Bob's

I use this amaranth flour along with garbanzo flour to make a gluten-free, sugar-free breakfast muffin. I add pumpkin, bananas and blueberries for sweetness. If I am feeling a bit wacky, in the Fall I throw in a handful of fresh cranberries. You can count on Bob's Red Mill products. I can shop at the mill store here in Portland, but the Thrive price is actually better.

I love amaranth

Posted   by Shelley Y from Bellevie, WA
I use this flour in various muffin recipes, not alone, but as a partial substitute, like two cups of flour and one-half cup of amaranth flour. It adds wonderful nuitrition.

Organic Amaranth Flour

Just tried it a couple of times as part of my breakfast mix. Have not felt anything yet. No strange smell though.

My Go-to GF Flour

Posted   by Sheila D
This is my go-to GF Flour. I use Amaranth in my GF flour blend and for GF gravy. It gives GF foods more flavor and has a mild hydrophilic quality (think chia seed - but milder). We're allergic to xantham & guar gum, so Amaranth flour gives my GF food the right consistency.

Another excellent product by Bob. Always nice quality. Use it in many of my baked goods blended with other gluten free flours.
