Description

Organic Amaranth, 45 lbs.

This amaranth is certified organic, triple-cleaned and perfect for baking & cooking purposes.

Convenient & safe storage: Our organic amaranth comes in six-gallon buckets (or pails... another word for the same container), containing 45 lbs. net weight. When you store amaranth at home, it needs to be protected in a couple of ways. First, it needs to be protected from a variety of little critters who'd like to get to it before you do. Weevils and rodents, for example. You also need to protect your amaranth from picking up excessive additional moisture, which can be drawn from the atmosphere. The buckets our amaranth comes in provide full protection against these storage risks. They have airtight gasket-sealed lids, Mylar liners, and oxygen absorber packets that remove the oxygen from the air in the bucket after we put the lid on. The O2 absorbers leave an atmosphere of nitrogen in the bucket (because air is mainly oxygen and nitrogen.) Our buckets safely lock out pests, and biological processes are put "on hold" in the Mylar protected, oxygen-free nitrogen atmosphere, so your amaranth enjoys complete peace and quiet until you want to use it.

  • “We had purchased small bags of amaranth at specialty markets. When we discovered the super pail option at Pleasant Hill Grain we were initially cautious because of the up front investment. Ultimately we took the plunge and couldn't be more satisfied.”

    – Tim D., IA



Beat oxidation! In whole-grain foods, the plant's cellular walls protect nutrients from oxidation. The process of oxidation begins to occur as soon as grain is ground, exposing the cell's contents to oxygen in the air. Flour that is several days (or more) old, has been exposed to oxygen that inevitably diminishes its nutritional value. The way to get full nutrition from whole grain foods is to mill them when you need them, right in your kitchen. Modern high-speed grain mills make it fast and easy to enjoy the freshest, best tasting and most nutritious food imaginable!

Super-cleaned: All of our amaranth is triple-cleaned to ensure purity and protect your grain mill from any foreign objects. (Amaranth that isn't sufficiently cleaned may contain small stones that will damage or destroy a grain mill... not to mention that you don't want such things in your food!)

Non-GMO: All of Pleasant Hill Grain's whole grain products are natural (non-GMO).

Pleasant Hill Grain offers over thirty kinds of whole grain products. You can also grow your own grains, fruits and vegetables with our heirloom garden seed & sprouting seed collections!

Our foods category offers many selections of baking ingredients, delicious dried fruits and vegetables, long-term storable foods, canned meat, fish and poultry, sweeteners and more.

As a whole grains shopper you may also be interested in hand crank and electric grain mills and grain flakers as well as heavy duty Bosch mixers, Ankarsrum (formerly Electrolux) mixers, and Häussler spiral dough mixers!

    Amaranth, its a great grain. If you buy it from your local store you risk stones and dust. The stones break your teeth and the some people have reactions to the dust. Pleasant Hill Grain's amaranth has none of these, tasty and clean and stores well.If you want amaranth then I don't think you will find better.

    Long term storage against the day of economic catastrophe that we're headed for. I hope it will be good.

    There were no problems this time. The seal on the bag was intact and no stones, sand or foreign substances in the product. I know from past experience that problems can sometimes occur due to human error, but Pleasant Hill Grain staff will stand behind their products.

    We had purchased small bags of amaranth at specialty markets. When we discovered the super pail option at Pleasant Hill Grain we were initially cautious because of the up front investment. Ultimately we took the plunge and couldn't be more satisfied. Ounce for comparative ounce it's a bargain, the pail preserves it, it's always fresh and on hand, and we have loved it. We use it in a variety of ways, from oatmeal and pancakes to stews. It's been a great addition to our kitchen and diet.
