Millet is one of the oldest human foods and is believed to be the first domesticated cereal grain. Though difficult to know the exact origin, it's widely accepted that millet was domesticated and cultivated simultaneously in Asia and Africa over 7,000 years ago. Its African origins make this grain an ideal candidate for farming even in poor soil and dry weather conditions.

Historically, Millet was one of the five sacred crops in ancient China and also earned a mention in the bible as an ingredient for unleavened bread. Over the ages, Millet has been a staple in the Eastern European diet where it was primarily eaten as a porridge or fermented into an alcoholic beverage. In India, Millet grains are ground into flour and used for making the traditional Indian flatbread known as Roti.

Our favourite ways to use Organic Millet Flour is to make fluffy pancakes, dumplings,s or flatbread. Our flour is prepared from stone milling the hulled millet grains. Millet has is a naturally gluten-free cereal grain which makes it perfect for those with sensitivities.

Nutritionally, Millet is an excellent source of dietary fibre. It is also a good source of manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, and copper. One of its significant benefits is that while many other grains are acidic, Millet is alkaline which makes it easily digestible, and helps maintain pH balance in the body.
