Barnyard millet is a good source of protein,
carbohydrate, fiber, and, most notably,
contains more micro nutrients (iron and zinc)
than other major cereals. Despite its nutritional
and agronomic benefits, barnyard millet has
remained an underutilized crop.
Barnyard millet is a good source of highly digestible
protein and at the same time is least caloric dense
compared to all other cereals. It is a grain which
makes one feel light and energetic after consumption.
A serving of barnyard millet (25g, raw) gives 75
calories and 1.5g of protein.
