What they're saying:

"Amaranth, known for its gluten-free grain and long life in flower arrangements, harbors a dense, nutritious leaf that some people eat but many find too bitter and throw away.

“The leaves are incredibly nutritious but go to waste. It's viewed as a poor man's food,” said Innovesca founder Mary Beth Wilson.
 


"If the nutrients from a crop that is plentiful and underutilized can be optimized, the potential for solving problems in countries battling malnutrition–from the United States to countries in Africa—is groundbreaking."

"I founded Innovesca to further develop this research behind optimized ingredients and to commercialize this technology with the goal of improving global nutrition. But also, through our business operations, we aim to maximize the positive social impact of what we do."
