Amaranth

Amaranth, The crop of the future!!

Amaranth has been cultivated as a grain for thousands of years, and hence it is known as one of the ancient grains.

The amaranth plant usually grows to around five or six feet and is maroon or crimson in color. The seeds of the plant number in the thousands and are tiny. Amaranth seeds are processed into popped, flaked, extruded and ground flour forms. They are used in snacks, cereal and nenergy bars, cereals,cooked in tradional dishes and in combination with other grains and flours in the baking industry.

TradeLink's supplies mainly come from South America: Argentina, Paraguay, Boliva and Peru.   In certian seasons India can fill in.  It is described as "the crop of the future”. It has been proposed as an inexpensive native crop that could be cultivated by indigenous people in rural areas for the following reasons reasons:

-Contains about thirty percent more protein than cereals like rice, sorghum and rye

-It is easy to cook
