Millet has been farmed for over a thousand years; in Italy it was widely used at the time of Romans and during the Middle Ages when it was considered an excellent substitute for meat.

Boil three parts of water for each part of millet and simmer for 20 mins until tender. Add more water and stir frequently during the cooking process to make a creamier millet.
Lightly toast millet before cooking to enhance the earthy, nutty flavour. Toss in salads or add to omelettes. Boil in milk instead of water and add some maple syrup and fruit for a tasty porridge.
Pop millet like popcorn, place a small amount in a dry skillet and shake the pan until you see a slight change in the colour and shape. Popped millet is smaller than popcorn and can be used also in place of breadcrumb coatings.
About 7 portions (4 full tablespoons / 70g per serving)
Store in a cool dark place. Once opened, store millet in a tightly sealed container.

We are committed to minimising the amount of packaging used for our products, and are constantly exploring sustainable options, with zero plastic our ultimate goal. We measure the impact of our packaging using the three criteria below:
|Packaging to Product Weight Ratio||7.0%|
Our millet is packed in vacuum-sealed plastic bags. This packaging helps to preserve the nutritional value of the grain and extends its shelf life naturally without the use of preservatives. Whilst we prefer to avoid plastic, this solution results in a longer shelf life and consequently in reduced food waste.
