This is the fascinating story of amaranth, a crop from the ancient past that is being resurrected as a modern, nutritious, gluten-free food. First used over 6,000 years ago, amaranth reached its peak of popularity in the time of the Aztec empire in the early 1500s. After the arrival of Cortez and his Spanish conquistadors in 1519, amaranth nearly disappeared from history, but after almost 500 years of neglect is being grown once again for its many valuable characteristics.
