Puffed amaranth is produced by heating the grains of amaranth until they pop and become light and crunchy. Amaranth is typically grown in regions known for their warmer climates such as South America and India. Amaranth is known for being an excellent source of protein, also containing fibre and many important micronutrients. Despite being one of the oldest crops in the world, Amaranth is still considered to be one of the most nutritious gluten free grains cultivated.
