  • ​Millet is an ancient grain that is naturally gluten-free. It is high in fibre and is also a source of B vitamins which are used to convert food into energy.
  • Millet is also high in minerals such as iron, magnesium and phosphorus. Iron is required for red blood cells to carry oxygen around the body. Magnesium and phosphorus are essential for strong and healthy bones.
  • Like many whole grains, millet is rich in plant nutrients such as phytic acid and phytate. Phytic acid may help to lower levels of “lousy” LDL cholesterol, while phytate is being studied for its potential to reduce cancer risk.
