Taste - Amaranth plants can grow to be over 2 metres tall yet as a microgreen it is one of the smallest and most delicate of additions to a plate with deep purple/magenta colours. The taste is mild and earthy like beets.
Nutrition - Amaranth leaves contain tocotienols (vitamin E) which may reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. They also contain good quantities of potassium - which helps move oxygen to the brain, and magnesium which, combined with potassium, can reduce the risk of hypertension. Pound for pound it contains more vitamin K than any other microgreen.
