Millets are one of those forgotten grains that were a part of our ancient culture. Also known as “Ancient Grains”, millets, millets are more than just an interesting alternative to the more common grains. Millets are highly nutritious and non-glutinous. They are considered to be the least allergenic and most easily digestible grains available. Millets are particularly high in minerals like iron, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium. Millet is a grain that should also be included on your list of heart-healthy choices because of its status as a good source of magnesium. A cup of cooked millet provides 19% of the daily value for magnesium.
