Amaranth was a staple food for the Aztecs. It has a nutty flavor and its yield is similar to that of rice or maize. Amaranth is nutritious and tastes between whole wheat or wheat berries. Amaranth is high in fibre, low in fat & is gluten free. When cooked they look like a somewhat sheen, almost like caviar.
Amaranth flour is gluten free & rich in protein. It is also high in dietary fibre & iron which makes it an excellent choice in gluten free baking. Just like quinoa flour, amaranth flour should not be used alone as it can give a stodgy, heavy feel to baked goods.
Arrowleaf clover is an annual legume used for both grazing and fodder conservation (hay or silage). It exhibits good cold tolerance and germinates well at low temperatures. It is well suited to loam and sandy soils with acidic pH, where its deep tap root can penetrate up to 1.5m into the ground thus sourcing moisture from lower in the soil profile.
Barley flour can be used to replace part of the wheat flour in a recipe for a slightly nutty flavour and texture. Unlike many non-wheat flours, it contains more gluten, has more than 4 times the fibre of all-purpose flour & has slightly more fibre than whole wheat flour.
