There are a lot of people right now who are looking for an alternative to rice and they know that it is not very easy. Yet, there are two things that people are considering because they feel that these would be effective for them. The first one is amaranth and the second one is quinoa.

Amaranth grains are known to be smaller as compared to quinoa grains. This is one of their differences. Another thing that you should know is that quinoa grains are normally used in salads more and other dishes because they will have a taste that will be perfect for those dishes. Amaranth will also have more protein as compared to quinoa.
