Sales Analysis of Amaranth (2017-2021) Vs. Market Outlook (2022-2032)

According to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global amaranth market is expected to surge ahead at a CAGR of 10.3% from 2022 to 2032.

Amaranth is classified to be a pseudo-cereal as its nutritional profile is similar to that of other grains such as wheat and rice, and this has increased its worth. The grains are ground to make amaranth flour that acts as a substitute for other flour.

This flour provides a variety of nutrients, proteins, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals as compared to other grains. It is similar to quinoa in some ways as both are naturally gluten-free and good sources of protein. Amaranth is considered to be a grain because its flowers are made up of minuscule grain-like buds.

There are several health benefits of amaranth, which include gluten-free, lowers cholesterol levels, anti-inflammatory properties, fights against cancer, lowered blood pressure, a rich source of protein, a good amount of lysine as compared to other vegetables, high fiber, a rich source of minerals & vitamins, and it boosts the immune system.
