Next time you are in our shop, ask for millet: Here are 5️⃣ brilliant reasons why:
1️⃣ It’s an ancient grain with a natural resistance to drought. In an era of shifting climate, it’s a grain waiting to be rediscovered.
2️⃣ The hulls of millet seed can be used to make filling for organic pillows.
3️⃣ Millet is generally grown without chemical pesticides and has a long tradition of sustainable farming practices.
4️⃣ Millet is a versatile grain and a nutritious substitution for rice or quinoa. It can be cooked into porridge, served like polenta, or turned into gluten-free pancakes.
5️⃣ Rich in B vitamins like niacin and thiamine, millet is a nutrient dense alternative to rice. One cup of cooked millet contains 12 percent of the recommended daily allowance of protein and is loaded with minerals manganese and phosphorous. Millet is also low glycemic and gluten-free.
