The Nutrition Value of Millet.

Millet, as many other whole grains, has an exceptional nutrition value. For starters, it is very rich in elements manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium. It is also very reach in protein (up to 15% of mass), B-complex vitamins (including niacin, thiamin, and riboflavin). In addition, millet contains many important minerals like zinc, iron, and iodine, and some very important amino-acids such as methionine and lecithin. The millet seeds also contain phyto-chemicals, including Phytic acid, which (as some believe) can help in lowering cholesterol, and Phytate, which may be associated with reduced cancer risk. It is non-glutinous and can be safe for people with wheat gluten related allergies. In addition, it is not acid forming. The grain is well digested and often given to children as liquid kasha .

As mentined before, millet contains magnesium which in some studies showed benefits in reducing frequency of migrain attacks, lower blood pressure, and provide benefits to a heart. Just one cup of cooked millet provides almost quater of daily magnesium value. Because millet is a whole grain and so rich in useful nutrients it can be part of healthy diet, to help balance weigh, keep cholesterol level under control and help to maintain good digestive health.
