"The Barnyard millet (Echinochloa frumantacea) is mainly grown in the hilly areas of Uttarakhand, including the Doodhatoli valley, where it is cultivated at an average altitude of 5000ft above sea level. It is a widely cultivated crop in the mountains due to its drought- resistant characteristics. It is a good source of highly digestible protein and at the same time is the least caloric dense compared to all other cereals. It makes one feel light and energetic after consumption. The carbohydrate content of barnyard millet is low and slowly digestible, making it a low glycemic index food and hence good for diabetics. Being non-glutinous, it is safe for people suffering from gluten allergy and celiac disease. It is a very good source of natural Iron and its consumption helps in recovery of Anemia. Its high fibre content helps in preventing constipation, excess gas, bloating and cramping.
