Amaranths are branching broad-leaved plants with egg-shaped or rhombic leaves which may be smooth or covered in tiny hairs. The leaves have prominent veins, can be green or red in color and have long petioles. The plants produce single flowers on terminal spikes which typically red to purple in color.
This color is also called amaranth red to distinguish it from the varying colors of other varieties of the amaranth flower. The color amaranth is similar to printer's magenta (pigment magenta), but redder. It is the color of the flower of those amaranth plants that have amaranth red colored flowers.
People use the entire plant to make medicine. Amaranth is used for ulcers, diarrhea, and swollen mouth and throat. It is also used to treat high cholesterol. In foods, amaranth is used as a cereal grain.
Amaranth leaves and stems are good economic sources of carotenoids, proteins, including the essential amino acids methionine and lysine, dietary fiber and minerals, such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, copper, phosphorus, zinc, iron, and manganese.
