OUR SNACKS ARE NOT ONLY CRAFTED FOR OPTIMAL NUTRITION BUT RECOGNIZED BY OUR LOYAL CUSTOMERS FOR THEIR TRULY AMAZING FLAVOR
A&H Creations started in 2018 with the launch of I amaranth.
Our journey began with my love to help and empower people to live a healthier and more responsible lifestyle. Being a Health & Wellness coach, Nutritionist and a Mother of 4 children, I realized how food influences our everyday lives. My Husband, children and I all have grown up enjoying Amaranth bars “alegrias” a traditional Mexican street food made with amaranth seeds.
This was our primary inspiration and motivation that lead us to develop a great tasting, healthy snack line using organic, locally grown amaranth seeds.
WE love amaranth.... It’s part of our culture and heritage for many reasons. It’s a native ancient superseed that has been a staple food since the time of the
Aztecs who believed it was a symbol for “enduring strength”.
What began as street food we took a step further and made a Gluten Free, vegan and healthier version of all of the favorite AMARANTH SNACKS we all grew up enjoying from the time we were children. All of this while preserving and still improving the delicious flavor. In fact, so delicious that WE WOULD NOT SETTLE UNTIL it was accepted by a child's palate as the snack in its original unhealthy version. After over 3 years of tasting, testing and perfecting, we have developed the most amazing, unique, authentic great tasting amaranth snacks on the market.
