It's in all the products but what actually is Amaranth?

Amaranth leaf, also known as morogo, is a wild African spinach that has been consumed for centuries in Southern Africa.

The abundance of bio-available micro-nutrients make this a  quiet super food that ticks a large box in a healthy, balanced diet.

The leaves have been solar dried and ground to form the base of our Nutrient Boosts. 

 

Amaranth grain is actually a seed and is part of the ancient grains family, similar to quinoa.

Gluten free, nutrient dense and protein rich, it has been popped and roasted to form the base of our Thrive cereals.
