  • Pearl millet or bajra is a highly nutritious and a gluten free grain. It is full of vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
  • The grain is easily digestible and has the lowest probability of causing allergic reactions.
  • It is rich in starch and this makes it a great source of energy.
  • It is an excellent source of protein and fiber.
  • It is rich in minerals like phosphorus, iron.
