Hulled Millet - Get the Facts
Millet and Its Many UsesHaving been enjoyed by humans for thousands of years, millet is processed from small-seed grasses and can be enjoyed in many different ways. There are various classes of millet and interestingly, 97% of the world’s millet crops are grown in developing countries. This is largely due to the fact that they are very easy to grow in tough, dry conditions and do not require the same level of maintenance of other crops. Millet can be used to make everything from porridge and beer to birdseed.
