Organic Sorghum

[Sorghum vulgare]

Sorghum was one of the first plants to be cultivated: it is believed that its present forms originated in West Africa several thousand years ago. From Africa, sorghum has spread all over the world: in ancient times to Asia and Europe, more recently to America and Australia.

It is a cereal grain tiny and rounded that looks a bit like corn and is used – especially in Africa – to make a kind of flat bread that looks like piadina.
Rich in nutrients, sorghum presents a right amount of protein, vitamins and mineral salts but also in complex carbohydrates. It is, therefore, a nutritious cereal that provides a lot of energy to our body but also particularly digestible.

Furthermore, thanks to the fibers it is rich in, sorghum helps to improve the health of our gastrointestinal system by promoting regularity and is perfect for keeping blood cholesterol levels at bay, in particular LDL (so-called “bad”) cholesterol.

Last but not least, it is rich in antioxidants and is gluten-free, the reason for which it is also suitable for the diet of people who have celiac disease. The Hulled Sorghum is obtained by removing the skin of the whole grain. Because of the reduced presence of fibers, hulled sorghum is more digestible and can be cooked without faster.
