Amaranth: Why this ancient grain made it into our almond butter

Updated: May 21, 2020


Once an integral part of the Aztec diet, amaranth has been making a comeback, and for a good reason: these tiny seeds pack a nutritional punch.


Like other pseudocereals, amaranth is naturally gluten free, and a complete source of protein. It contains all 9 essential amino acids, and contains double the amount of protein than a comparable serving of corn or rice.


Aside from being a great source of protein for vegans and anyone with gluten sensitivity, amaranth also contains key minerals including selenium, magnesium and phosphorus.

At SMÜTH Butters, we’ve carefully developed our almond butter to deliver the most delicious flavors, unique textures, and maximum nutrition. This is why we were determined to include amaranth in one of our jars. Our Honey Amaranth almond butter is the result of months of recipe testing, and our commitment to using only high quality and real food to create unique nut butters.


Puffed to create a crunchy surprise in every bite, our Honey Amaranth almond butter is sure to delight.
