Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:
Foxtail millet is an annual grass grown for human food. It is the second-most widely planted species of millet and the most important in East Asia. In India, foxtail millet is still an important crop in its arid and semi-arid regions. In South India, it has been a staple diet among people for a long time from the Sangam period. It is a good source of dietary fibre, proteins and vitamins.
