Amaranth is an 8000+ year-old superfood that is an excellent source of proteins.
It is 100% gluten free and rich in minerals and vitamins. It is also one of the most climate resistant and ecologically viable crops.
Proeon’s Amaranth Protein combines the goodness of high protein content with the benefits of Lysine – an essential amino acid that most grains lack. Made with our proprietary process, it has significantly higher solubility and foaming capacity, making it ideal for applications in plant-based milk and alternative dairy applications.
