Firestix™ is a trademarked name for a variety of the amaranthus flower sometimes called love-lies-bleeding and molten flower. The Amaranthaceae family has almost seventy species that are cultivated as leafy vegetables, cereal grains and ornamental plants. The showy blossoms are entirely edible, and marketed as an edible garnish.
Amaranth dates back to the 14th century when the plant was used by the Incans and Aztecs as a primary food source as well as for ornamental and ritualistic purposes. As a result of the Spanish conquest in 1521 amaranth cultivation significantly declined and was replaced by other grains such as corn as a food staple. Currently amaranth has experienced resurgence in popularity due to the high protein content it provides.
