The History of Amaranth: When Hernando Cortez led the Spaniards into Mexico, he quickly learned that the wonder grain Amaranth was at the very center of Aztec culture. Amaranth was the most abundant grain the Aztecs grew and the nutritional cornerstone of their diet. So widely was the tiny grain cultivated that each year farmers offered over 200,000 bushels of Amaranth as tribute to their ruler Montezuma. Today, modern science confirms that Amaranth is truly a super grain. Amaranth is rich in lysine, one of the essential amino acids that is usually low in other grains. It contains twice the lysine and iron of wheat, and has more than 12 different vitamins and minerals. From a nutritional standpoint, it is clear why the Aztecs referred to Amaranth as a wonder grain.
