Exporting amaranth grains to Europe
The European demand for ancient grains and niche cereals such as amaranth is increasing. Around 5,500 tonnes of niche grains, most of which were amaranth seeds, were imported from developing countries in 2015. The prospects for use of amaranth in the health food and gluten-free segments are promising. Germany is the largest importer of amaranth, and demand for this cereal is expected to grow in the food and processing industry.
