Millets are the sleeper foods of the modern era. They are packed with heaps of nutrition, antioxidants and fiber. These are the latest buzz in the health-conscious world that have long been followed in ancient Indian studies and even traditional cuisine.
Millets are generally cereal grains that belong to the Poaceae family and are a gluten-free, high protein, fiber dense alternative to regular grains. There are various kinds of millets in the world and each one comes with a separate list of benefits of its own.
On average, a cup of cooked millets contains just about 207 calories, 6 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber and less than 2 grams of fat. They are also rich in minerals like calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and selenium as well as essential vitamins like folate, pantothenic acid, niacin, riboflavin, and Vitamins B6, C, E, and K.
The best part about millets is the fact that ‘healthy’ does not have to be bland.
