Amaranth flour is a gluten-free, protein-rich flour produced by grinding seeds from the amaranth plant into a fine powder. Amaranth’s name comes from the Greek for “immortal” or “everlasting.” Despite its many health benefits, amaranth makes no claim to endow its users with immortality but is so-named because its seed is virtually indestructible.
