There’s a good reason why amaranth protein powder has become so popular. Not only is amaranth a whole grain that’s rich in both protein and fiber, but it’s one of the few plants that contains all the essential amino acids required by the body, particularly lysine.

The protein in amaranth is highly bioavailable, which means it is more digestible than other seeds and grains and has been compared to the digestibility of whey protein. It’s also a great source of vitamins A, C, E, K, B5, B6, folate, niacin, and riboflavin, which act as antioxidants, raise energy levels, control hormones, and do much more. Amaranth also contains small amounts of saturated fatty acids, making it a unique plant for many healthy purposes.
