Amaranth leaves being related to spinach is high in oxalates that causes calcium deficiency among other problems. However, not much has been said about the seeds/grain. Can a person with gout safely consume Amaranth seeds in place of say rice? Thank you.

If you have blood sugar issues keep in mind that amaranth could have a more detrimental effect, being high gi and easy to rack up high load with if had in any reasonable amount say, a bowl of porridge/congbee sort of thing...

Great puddingy/ very thick, gelatniny consisetncy though..

Amaranth is a grain and technically verboten in paleo. So is rice of any type… Though you fill find less strict paleos who consume rice and grains that do not contain gluten. Amaranth for rice is not that big of an exchange… amaranth for wheat would be.
