Organic Hulled Millet
Millet has a sweet nutty flavour and is considered to be one of the most digestible and non-allergenic grains available. One of the best-kept secrets of our ancient ancestors, it has been a prized crop in China, India, Greece, Egypt and Africa, and was said to have been first cultivated over 7000 years ago during the neolithic period. More recently, millet has been gaining popularity in Western Europe and North America as a nutritious, quick cooking and delicious whole grain.
Millet is useful as a breakfast porridge or rice substitute in risottos, pilaf, and salads, or added to soups and casseroles. Millet is also used as a gluten free substitute for couscous.
