Why Millets?

Millets like sorghum are predominantly starchy and the protein content is comparable to that of wheat and maize. Millets are non – gluten, non-acid forming foods and are high in proteins, fibre, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium and zinc. They not only help prevent diabetes but also other complications like heart disease and cancer. Millets are also relatively rich in B vitamins (especially niacin, B6 and folic acid) and phosphorus. Among the millets, pearl millet (Bajra) has the highest content of macronutrients and micronutrients such as iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, folic acid and riboflavin. Finger millet (Ragi) is an extraordinary source of calcium. Though low in fat content, it is high in PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acids). It is also rich in essential amino acids, like lysine, threonine, valine, sulphur, containing amino acids. Millets have much more fibre, proteins, vitamins and minerals than rice and wheat and are gluten – free too.They have low glycemic index and make you feel full for long and easy to cook. Millets are eco-friendly as they need one tenth of the water required to grow paddy rice and less fertilizer.
