What is a staple food? We are familiar with this term since our school days, right?
To go by the literal definition, the staple food is what is consumed by people routinely and constitutes a dominant portion of one’s diet.
Since time immemorial, the staple food in the Indian diet has been rice and wheat. But in recent years with more research done on food and its health benefits, it might be time to break this bubble. Pure rice or wheat diet may not be really healthy for you, especially since adulteration of products is on a high than ever before.
So what’s the solution?

They are a really ancient food, way older than rice or wheat, found in abundance in countries like Africa, India, etc. Their popularity went down with the onset of rice, wheat, and other grains. But they are making a come-back now, thanks to an increasingly health-conscious population. Millets are of different types with each having its unique benefits.
Imagine this. What if we have a dish made out of all kinds of millets. Wouldn’t that be the most powerful food? What if this is in the form of something we all love - Noodles? Yes, you heard that right. Introducing the Multi Millet or Mixed Dhaniyam Noodles, the new superfood in town!

Health Benefits of Millet
Interestingly, millets are known as the ‘poor man’s food grain’ because of their low price. But do not get deceived by the name, it is not poor in nutrition and they are for all!
Let’s take a look at the amazing benefits offered by Multi Millet.
Keep Blood Sugar Under Control
Millets have a very low glycemic index. Being a rich source of fiber, proteins, and amino acids, they help prevent spikes in blood sugar levels by releasing sugar in very small quantities into the bloodstream.
For a Smart Heart
The antioxidants present in millets increase the good cholesterol (HDL) in the body and reduce the bad cholesterol (LDL) thus keeping the heart, heart vessels, arteries, etc safe from conditions like heart attacks, stroke, etc.
For a Healthy Stomach
Bloating, diarrhea, constipation. The list of stomach troubles can go on and on. But now, we have a one-stop solution to all gut problems - the Multi Millets. They regulate bowel movements and improve the overall quality of the liver, kidney, etc.
Aids in Weight Loss
For people who are trying to reduce their weight, there is nothing better than consuming at least one millet-rich meal daily. Millets contain an amino acid that lowers appetite. The fiber in them also gives a feeling of fullness, thus reducing the intake of food or over-eating.
Breast Milk Production
For pregnant and lactating women, millets are an excellent option as they help increase the amount of breast milk. In Millets, Ragi or Finger Millet is especially advised for pregnant women.
For a Good Sleep
We all know how important it is to get good, sound sleep. A lack of sleep is the cause of a lot of diseases like blood pressure, stress, anxiety, etc. The amino acids found in millets help relax the body. A bowl of millet porridge at night is all you need for that long, awaited peaceful sleep.
Being free of gluten, millets are anytime a better option than rice or wheat, which contains gluten in them. For people suffering from gluten-sensitive issues like celiac disease, a millet diet is very beneficial.
Side-Effects of Millets
If there are positives, it is a given that there will be negatives as well, right? Over-consumption of millets is bad for your thyroid gland and interferes with the production of thyroid hormones. So always make sure to consume millets in moderate amounts or else all positives will get canceled out!
