Millet has been an important grain in Africa and Asia for several thousands of years. This healthy grain is high in fiber as well as a good source of manganese, copper, phosphorus and magnesium and is also gluten free. It is very versatile in the kitchen as well. When prepared with various methods it can be enjoyed in many different ways. When boiled it can be made similar to rice or a porridge. It can also be roasted in a dry pan first, to bring out a slightly sweet nutty flavor. When ground into a flour it can be added to other flours or can be used alone to make flat breads such as rotis or tortillas. Millet flour oxidizes rapidly, so we suggest using a grain mill to make your own fresh flour at home.
We are proud to bring you Hulled Millet grown on a single farm in Italy. This farm is certified organic and never uses chemical pesticides or fertilizers. Our millet has also been lab tested for glyphosate and none was found in our sample.
The hulled millet can be prepared similar to rice or can be ground on a grain mill to make your own fresh flour at home.
When Healthy Traditions began to look at producing products in the U.S. from traditional sources, food that tested clean from GMOs, glyphosate, and other herbicides and pesticides, we were faced with a dilemma:
How do we package these high quality clean foods?
We began a search for packaging that did not contain harmful chemicals and was not harmful to the environment. What good is sourcing and selling high quality traditional food if it is going to be contaminated by the packaging?
The brown bags you see in our newest products, including our hulled millet, reflect what we found was currently the best option for packaging our high-quality line of traditional products.
These bags harmlessly decompose anywhere that microbes are present (salt and fresh water, soil, landfills or in a backyard compost).
They decompose into organic matter without leaving any pollutants behind. (Independent Lab tests show - "None Detected.")
They have been lab tested for possible leaching of many heavy metals and pollutants, and none were found.
