Amaranth (Amaranthus caudatus L.) is an annual erect flowering plant that can grow 3-8 ft tall. Also known as Inca wheat, love-lies-bleeding and foxtail amaranth, it commonly has long reddish-purple flower clusters. Amaranth originated in the Andes and was a staple food of the Aztecs. Like quinoa, it is a pseudo-grain. Grown mainly for its edible starchy seeds, its leaves are also edible.

Amaranth is high in protein and lysine, an amino acid found in low quantities in grains. It is a moderate-rich source of phosphorous, manganese and iron and also contains the vitamins A, C, E, K, B5, B6, folate, niacin and riboflavin. Also present are phytochemicals including polyphenols, saponins, tannins, oxalates and phytosterols.*
