    Millet is one of the oldest human foods and is believed to be the first domesticated cereal grain. Though difficult to know the exact origin, it's widely accepted that millet was domesticated and cultivated simultaneously in Asia and Africa over 7000 years ago. Millet's African origins make this grain an ideal candidate for farming even in poorer soils and dryer weather conditions.

    Historically, Millet was one of the five sacred crops in ancient China and also earned a mention in the Bible as an ingredient for unleavened bread. Over the ages, Millet has been a staple in the Eastern European diet where it was primarily eaten as a porridge or fermented into an alcoholic beverage. In India, Millet grains are ground into flour and used for making the traditional Indian flatbread known as Roti.
