We source our organic millet from a grower in the Darling Downs. It is a whole grain that's packed with protein, antioxidants, and nutrients. Plus, it's naturally gluten free, making it an excellent choice for people who have coeliac disease or follow a gluten free diet. For over 10,000 years, millet was a trusted and nutritious food for everyone from the ancient Chinese to the long-lived Hunzas. It is the seed of a plant that belongs to the grass family and has a similar protein content to wheat. Millet in various forms is used as a couscous alternative, for bread, flour and cooked as porridge. These light puffs make for a great breakfast cereal or salad garnish.
♥ Millet is rich in catechins such as quercetin which boost liver and kidney function. These organs are essential for the detoxification of the body.
