Browntop Millet Benefits:
My phone was ringing when I got home after returning from my office in the evening. It was a call from my school days friend. ”Hey listen I was thinking to call you for so many days, asking you about your initiative on millets and how to include millets in our family diet as my parents are suffering from diabetes??
I said it’s very simple and easy. The only thing is to just start the journey and include millets in your regular diet. You can follow my blog where I have written about ”How to cook millets perfectly”.
In this busy world, we are neglecting our health and suffering from many lifestyle diseases like diabetes, blood pressure, joint pains, and heart-related problems. Can we sit and think for a moment. I will say we have given more preference to one or two cereals. The day you include millets, you can feel a change in your health.
Today, I have bought a millet that has more power and it’s healthy, the Browntop Millet. Will share all about the Browntop Millet Benefits in this blog. Let’s start.
What is Browntop Millet?
This millet has a great demand from the point of nutritional profile and adapting to the hot and dry conditions demanding less water and inputs. It is mostly grown in the rainfed areas of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and some parts of North-Central India. It can tolerate drought and even can be grown in the coconut tree plantation. It has the potential to check soil erosion in hilly areas.
Apart from the Browntop millet benefits, its uniqueness has brought my inner intuition to carry out a trial of Browntop Millet in Koraput, Odisha and the experiment has proved that this millet can grow well here.
