Nutritional values

Millet is one of the gluten-free cereals and is therefore also given to all those who cannot tolerate gluten protein (e.g. in cases of celiac disease or sprue). The plant, which belongs to the sweet grasses, contains plenty of silicon, which we need for beautiful hair, nails and skin.

The extremely low-fat side dish goes particularly well with dishes with an Arabic touch. Not all dates are the same. Treat yourself to the best quality (free of harmful substances from the organic food store). You will taste it!
