Millet is an ancient grain that has been consumed for centuries and serves as a staple food in many parts of the world. It is gluten-free, highly nutritious and provides several health benefits. A single serving of millet contains 6 grams of protein, 4 grams of dietary fiber, and numerous vitamins (A, E & B6) and minerals (magnesium & phosphorus). Millet also has a low glycemic index which can help keep blood sugar levels stable throughout the day. In terms of flavor profile, millet has a mild taste similar to corn or quinoa with slight nutty undertones. This makes it versatile enough to be used in both sweet and savory dishes like salads or porridge. Additionally its texture varies from fluffy when cooked whole to creamy when ground into flour making it ideal for baking needs as well!
