On the days we sprout millet our whole sprouting facility fills with a sweet, nutty aroma. Organic sprouted millet has a soft, delicate texture and a subtle, sweet flavour that is similar to sweet corn, and it’s naturally gluten free!
Sprouting millet aids in digestibility and increases it naturally sweet flavour. It also reduces its cook time to just 10 minutes!
Consumed for over 7,000 years, millet is still a staple in many parts of the world. In Africa and India, it was traditionally sprouted and/or fermented, then cooked as a creamy breakfast porridge. Try cooking it with coconut, almond, or dairy milk for a creamy, naturally sweet porridge, no extra sweeteners needed! It’s a perfect way to get in your servings of whole grains and add variety to your mornings.
Sprouted millet is also wonderful when rinsed and fluffed with a fork for a light, fluffy grain that’s great for salads, side dishes and fritters. Swap 1:1 for non-sprouted millet, or use as a substitute for rice, quinoa or couscous. Because of its quick cook time, it’s a great, nutritious grain to reach for on-the-go.

Whole sprouted millet is a wonderful inclusion or topper for multigrain breads and sourdough. For the home miller, it makes a delicious addition to gluten free baking.
