Begin the day bright and wide-eyed with the crackling, crunchy Beginnings mixed millet flakes. Organic mixed millet flakes are made from rare and exotic mixed millets.

Beginnings mixed millet flakes are rich in dietary fibre, gluten-free, and contain no added sugar. Known for their protein content, they carry the natural flavor of grains and are super satisfying too. Enjoy a bowlful of healthy cereals with the goodness of almonds and raisins, and get the much-needed energy to kick start your day.
The staple food of ancient India was millet, not rice. Millet is high in fibre, rich in essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, naturally gluten-free, alkaline, non-allergenic, and easily digestible. A low glycemic index makes them an ideal rice substitute, good for cholesterol, diabetes, and weight loss.
Millet contains a high amount of dietary fibre, which helps lower blood glucose levels and improve insulin response. Fibre also regulates the speed of digestion, helps the absorption of nutrients, and fills you up, so you don’t feel hungry so often. Since fibre helps clean the intestinal tract of toxins, it’s great for digestive disorders too.
Apart from these obvious benefits, these super grains are a great source of several vitamins and minerals, including phosphorus, important for energy production and storage, magnesium which enhances nutrient delivery and increases insulin sensitivity. Though every type has a different nutrient profile, most are high in protein, contain minerals such as calcium, iron, and zinc, and are rich in vitamin B6, niacin, and folic acid. Lignans in millet are thought to protect us against breast cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
