Introduction: The word amaranth comes from the Greek word amarantos, meaning "unwithering". The word was applied to amaranth because it did not soon fade and so symbolized immortality. In ancient Greece, the amaranth (also called chrysanthemum and helichrysum) was sacred to Ephesian Artemis. It was supposed to have special healing properties, and was used to decorate images of the gods and tombs. It was also widely used by the Chinese for its healing chemicals, curing illnesses such as infections, rashes, and migraines. Amaranth was thought of as a "super grain" and was rotated in the fields with maize and beans. Amaranth has begun growing in popularity since the 1980s for its overall health benefits and beautiful color.
