Our organic hulled millet is a staple in many diets around the world, millet grew wild in Africa for centuries before being cultivated by man. In addition to being nutrient-rich, it grows well in cold, arid regions and can be harvested within 70 days of planting. While it has been primarily cultivated in Africa, Asia, and Europe, it is becoming more popular in the Western world.

Though technically a seed, millet offers a similar nutritional profile than grains and can be prepared in many of the same ways. It looks like little yellow pellets of bird seed (which is, in fact, one of the ways it is used) but it cooks up into a tender grain that has a mild corn flavor. Plus, it is something unique that can help add some flavor variety to your gluten free diet.

Millet is a whole grain, containing the bran, germ and endosperm. Bran is the hard outer coating of a kernel. It has most of the kernel's fiber. It also has vitamins and minerals. The germ is the part that sprouts into a new plant. It has many vitamins, fats and other natural plant nutrients. The endosperm is the energy supply for the seed. It mostly contains starches. It has small amounts of proteins and vitamins. The endosperm has very little fiber.

Compared to other grains, millet is a good source of protein and iron, and is high in dietary fiber.

Our organic hulled millet is specifically of the Proso Millet variety (Panicum Miliaceum L.). Its color is light to golden yellow and the grains are 2-4mm in size.

 

What is the difference between Turkish and American millet?

  • None, it is simply a matter of different growing season and logistics. Sometimes we have both sometimes just one of the two.

General Storage Tips:

• Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
• Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
• Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
• Mason jars make great storage containers.
• Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
