By any nutritional parameter, millet are miles ahead of rice and wheat In terms of their mineral content, compared to rice and wheat. Each one of the millet has more fibre than rice and wheat. Some as much as fifty times that of rice. Finger millet has thirty times more Calcium than rice while every other millet has at least twice the amount of Calcium compared to rice. In their Iron content, foxtail and little millet are so rich that rice is nowhere in the race. While most of us seek a micro nutrient such as Beta Carotene in pharmaceutical pills and capsules, millet offer it in abundant quantities. The much privileged rice, ironically, has zero quantity of this precious micro nutrient.
In this fashion, nutrient to nutrient, every single millet is extraordinarily superior to rice and wheat and therefore is the solution for the malnutrition that affects a vast majority of the Indian population.
