Why we should love millet?

Mar 13, 15 • Dietitian said...2 Comments

Millet is a perfect solution for those looking for some diversity in their diet.

It’s a great source of protein, phosphorus, magnesium and B group vitamins. It is light and easy to digest, gluten free, which makes it suitable for people on a gluten free diet.

It contains silica- a rarely occurring in other food products ingredient which has a healing effect on the joints and beneficial effects on the nails, skin and hair. Millet is alkaline, therefore its consumption helps maintain the acid/alkali balance.

It can be eaten cooked, as an alternative to other groats or potatoes, as a salad addition. May be served for breakfast with fruit and nuts instead of regular muesli, or even ground dry as a replacement for flour and used for baking.
