About our Organic Puffed Millet
Puffed Millet is a nutritious, puffed ingredient produced from Non-GMO millet.
This mildly sweet, starchy, and nutty grain has a distinctive puffed texture and
provides protein, fiber, and iron. Millet is fairly strong in taste and often used in bread, breakfast porridge dishes, savory pilafs, or as a substitute for rice and breakfast cereals.
Millets have been an important food for at least 7,000 years, and some historians have found evidence that millet may have been more important in early history than rice.
Also reported in early Greece at about 3000 BCE, ancient bulk storage containers stored millet in Macedonia and northern Greece.
Widely consumed in hot, dry climates, millet is a favorite in parts of Western Africa, is the main ingredient in popular Vietnamese foods, and is the base ingredient to create distilled liquor in India.
Millets are a small grain and grow around the year in warm-weather climates. Similar to other cereals, millets belong to the grass family with similar nutrient content.
Health Benefits of Organic Millet: A Nutritional Superfood
Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine”. Millet is a true traditional medicinal food. Because of its nourishing magnesium levels, millet may support blood vessel health via blood vessel relaxation. This in turn may support healthy circulation and a healthy cardiovascular system.
Millet is very popular among people who have gluten-related disorders and wheat allergy sufferers as millet is gluten-free.
Because research has shown the link between low fiber diets and a variety of health issues, millet is a superfood traditionally used in one’s diet to support digestive, cardiovascular, and lipid health.
