As you can see, the chemical analysis of this culture is very diverse and amaranth becomes extremely necessary for a dietary and balanced diet. It is no secret that the diet of modern people has become impoverished over the past century. Scientists also note that our microflora suffers from antibiotics, a large amount of carbohydrates and the monotony of food. This weakens the immune system, the main organ systems receive less vital trace elements, vitamins and amino acids (as many as 18 species!). This affects not only our physical well-being, but also our emotional state. The majority of the population is concentrated in cities and is forced to receive a set of necessary components from a standard set of products of animal or vegetable origin. Despite the fact that in recent years we can already buy more types of greens and exotic fruits in our supermarkets, the menu still leaves much to be desired. Amaranth is a modern superfood, that is, a useful culture that can provide the human body with the necessary substances at different periods of life. Amaranth alone, with its nutritional value and a large list of macro and microelements, replaces dozens of different vegetables, fruits, different types of cereals and, most importantly, becomes an alternative to animal protein.
