Description

Organic Hulled Proso Millet Seed, 43 lbs.

This hulled millet seed is certified organic, triple-cleaned and perfect for baking & cooking purposes. 

Convenient & safe storage: Our millet is certified organic and non-GMO, and comes in six-gallon buckets (or pails... another word for the same container), containing 43 lbs. net weight. When you store millet at home, it needs to be protected in a couple of ways. First, it needs to be protected from a variety of little critters who'd like to get to it before you do. Weevils and rodents, for example. You also need to protect your millet from picking up excessive additional moisture, which can be drawn from the atmosphere. The buckets our organic hulled millet comes in provide full protection against these storage risks. They have airtight gasket-sealed lids, Mylar liners, and oxygen absorber packets that remove the oxygen from the air in the bucket after we put the lid on. The O2 absorbers leave an atmosphere of nitrogen in the bucket (because air is mainly oxygen and nitrogen). Our buckets safely lock out pests, and biological processes are put "on hold" in the Mylar protected, oxygen-free nitrogen atmosphere, so your orgnaic millet seed enjoys complete peace and quiet until you want to use it.

  • “We've always loved organic hulled millet. The problem has always been finding an organic source free from gravel. This is the only place we will purchase millet because it is so clean. Thanks for taking the extra effort to have a superb product!”

    – Angela B., SC

Super-cleaned: All of our bulk millet grain is triple-cleaned to ensure purity and protect your grain mill from any foreign objects. (Millet that isn't sufficiently cleaned may contain small stones that will damage or destroy a grain mill... not to mention that you don't want such things in your food!)

Non-GMO: All of Pleasant Hill Grain's whole food products are natural (non-GMO).

Millet Uses & History

Millet is a small seeded-grass (or cereal grain) that's drought tolerant and grows well in arid and semiarid environments. Millet has been grown and consumed in East Asia, Russia and some parts of Africa since ancient times. There are several species of millet including pearl, finger, foxtail, proso, little, barnyard and kodo. The millet on this page is hulled organic proso millet (panicum miliaceum). Sorghum, which is a different gluten-free cereal grain, is sometimes referred to as “great millet”. Sorghum and millet share many characteristics.

In India, millet flour, called ragi flour, is mixed with sorghum flour to make a traditional, gluten-free flatbread. In Russian and Chinese cuisines millet porridge is a common breakfast food, similar to oatmeal. Millet can also be cooked, much like rice, and mixed with various flavorings to make a sweet or savory side dish, or a base for stir fry and curry. In addition to grinding into flour or cooking, the seeds can be soaked and added to bread dough, popped for mixing into protein bars, or even malted to make alcoholic beverages.

  • “Good product at a reasonable price. Well packaged and delivered promptly. Definitely would buy again.”

    – JB, NY

Millet is gluten-free, which makes it a safe choice for those who are allergic to gluten. Baked goods made with millet flour are light and airy, but can turn out dry and crumbly, so we recommend combining millet flour with other flours such as sorghum, teff and brown rice when making gluten-free cookies, pancakes, pastries and breads.

Cooked millet smells grassy and has a mild, slightly bitter flavor, similar to quinoa, sorghum and rice. Its flavor complements a wide range of foods from berries and chocolate to earthy spices, sweet potatoes, squash and herbs.

Millet is a good source of dietary fiber, protein, minerals, antioxidants and essential amino acids.

To cook millet, simmer 1 cup grain with 2 cups liquid for about 15 minutes. A cup of dry grain yields about 3 cups cooked grain. Adjust the liquid to change the texture—dry millet is best for fluffy pilafs and grain salads; the texture of dry, cooked millet is similar to couscous. Millet cooked with more liquid is good for creamy hot cereals and pudding.

  • Just in Time for Thanksgiving!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The Millet and Sorghum SuperPails we ordered came quickly and were beautifully packaged. And they arrived just in time for Thanksgiving. We all enjoyed a healthy serving of millet stuffing without turkey! The taste and texture of the millet were perfect. The grains are clean (no dust) and completely hulled (no overlooked outer shells).

    The sorghum is of the same high quality as the millet. We cooked some as soon as the pails arrived. Perfect topped with buttery sauteed mushrooms and onions! We will definitely purchase both again. Thank you!
