Why Sprouted Millets and Grains?
Every few years, there comes a food and diet trend that enters the market to make a difference. This time, it is the return of indigenous grains but this is more than just a fad—it is a way for us to reconnect to our roots and keep that as a constant in our diets here on. Indigenous plants or better known as millets have been serving humankind as food and medicine for generations. They’re the epitome of nutritious eating without damaging the ecosystem. More than anything, they are proof that all we need to maintain a mighty health is right here around us on local lands.
alt foods’ is very proud of using these indigenous millets and grains and leading the global conversation on these ingredients. On that note, here are some key benefits of our hero ingredients;
