The Humble Millet That Toppled Rice

By Richmillet Nagaraju , in Kodo Millet,

Kodo Millet or paspalum scrobiculatum as it is known scientifically, has been grown in India since 3000 years. It is a minor grain crop in India and most important in the Deccan plateau. This Indigenous cereal of India is grown in Uttar Pradesh in the north and Kerala and Tamilnadu in the south. Other indian states include Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and Bihar. It has many medicinal properties which is helpful in diabetes and rheumatism. A study done currently proves that  the aqueous and ethanolic extracts of this grain produced a dose-dependent fall in fasting blood glucose (FBG) and a significant increase in serum insulin level. This research has been able to identify five anti-diabetic compounds — quercetin (the major one), ferulic acid, p-hydroxybenzoic acid, vanillic acid and syringic acid — from Kodo Millet and one chemical (quercetin) that prevents obesity. Apart from this the presence of phospholipids, fibre contents and low oil content makes this grain a true nutraceutical. Kodo Millet which is extremely drought and salt resistant and can be grown in gravelly and rocky soils should be encouraged for cultivation.
