POTSDAM -- The Potsdam Food Co-Op is offering free samples of chai-spiced amaranth pudding on July 3 from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

Amaranth is a highly nutritious seed, the co-op said in a news release, with iron and calcium and with a fiber content triple that of wheat, but is gluten-free. It is a digestive grain, making it good for those recovering from illness or transitioning from a fast or cleanse. Its earthy, nutty flavor lends itself well to both sweet and savory dishes, the release says.
