Kodo millet is also known as Varagu rice or kodra in hindi and has been grown and consumed in the southern part of India for centuries. Being gluten free it is also suitable for people with gluten intolerance/Celiac Disease. Millets are a good source of dietary fibre and are rich in essential minerals such as magnesium, copper and phosphorus. By consuming millets, you will be encouraging farmers in dry land areas to grow crops that are best suited for those regions. This is a step towards sustainable cropping practices and biodiversity.
