Millet: The ancient and controversial grain
from By Heather Linderfelt
For those in search of more variety in their grains and/or a gluten-free diet, millet is an ancient grain making a comeback in the U.S. diet. Millet comes from the small-seeded grasses of the semiarid tropics of Asia and Africa. We know it as a chief component in birdseed and in some cereals, but one-third of the world's population eats millet as a staple in their diet. Similar to rice, millet is bland in flavor and is cooked in the same manner, making it another perfect gluten-free alternative.
