Amaranth is usually green in colour, but a purple variant, was once grown for use in Inca rituals. Fast forward 500 years and welcome to our red amaranth (Amaranthus cruentus). Due to its vibrant red flowers, red amaranth is used as a dye, originally by the Hopi tribe. A member of the Amaranthaceae family, which includes beetroot, the red pigment common to this plant family is due to the antioxidant, betacyanin, present. Betacyanin is, like anthocyanin, a powerful antioxidant, which is beneficial in the prevention of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Red amaranth may be drunk anytime during the day including after a meal to aid digestion, or just before bedtime to relax. Catering pouches are also on request.
Please note the pouches are not airtight, and therefore once opened, your tisane should be transferred to an airtight caddy or storage jar in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and strong odours. We do not recommend glass, plastic and paper containers.
