IMPORTANCE OF MILLETS
Millets like ragi (Finger Millet), navane (Foxtail Millet), haaraka (Kodo Millet), sajje (Pearl Millet), saame (Little Millet), baragu (Proso Millet) & Oodhalu (Barnyard) are one of the most important food sources in the Indian subcontinent. They are highly nutritious, gluten-free, non-acid forming and hence are soothing & easy to digest. Unpolished Millets contain a high amount of proteins, dietary fibre, B-complex vitamins, essential amino acids and Vitamin E. Millets are also rich in micronutrients like, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium.
Compared to polished rice, millets release glucose over a longer period of time. This lowers the risk of diabetes and deters obesity.
