What is Sorghum?

Sorghum is the fifth most commonly grown grain crop in the world after wheat, rice, corn, and barley. But this tasty, gluten-free grain often gets overlooked in many Western countries. Sorghum has many health benefits that make it worth including in your diet. Sorghum is high in dietary fiber and has a neutral flavor making it ideal for use in numerous types of gluten-free food products. Sorghum is high in phenolic compounds that can add health benefits not found in other fruits, vegetables, and grains. The darker sorghums, in particular, have high levels of antioxidants, comprised of 3d-anthocyanins, which are unique to sorghum. White corn contains high nutritional value, containing starch and cellulose, sugars, dietary fiber, water, energy molecules, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, calories, and mineral elements such as iron, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, and sodium. Contains vitamins such as thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B complex, and many saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, oils, vitamin C, vitamin A, folic acid, and salicylic acid.

Sorghum & Fiber

For those with diabetes, sorghum benefits come from the grain’s mix of fiber, phenols, antioxidants, protein, and its low-glycemic status. Whole grains are a fantastic source of dietary fiber, and unlike many other grains, sorghum does not have an indigestible hull that must be removed. So, even sorghum’s fiber-rich outer layers can be eaten. Consuming adequate fiber is essential for good digestion, cardiovascular health, and helps us to feel energized and satisfied longer after meals. Plus, the tannins in sorghum are reported to inhibit weight gain.
