Organic Grain Amaranth Seed

(A/4-5')(FS) This grain was once used by ancient Aztecs and is well worth some experimenting. We toast them in a little olive oil where they pop like tiny popcorn. The toasted grain has an excellent nutty flavor and is great in stir frys. Grain Amaranthe is supposedly higher in protein than wheat, rice and corn as well as unusually high in lysine, an essential amino acid.
