Amaranth is a pseudo-cereal, like quinoa (a 'pseudo-cereal' is not actually a grain, but is a seed that has a similar nutrient profile and usage application to a whole grain), that originated from Mexico. It is extremely high in protein, and contains lysine, an amino acid found missing or “barely there” in other grains. Studies have shown that it is a cholesterol lowering “grain,” and of course, it’s naturally gluten free.
