SORGHUM – SOME OF IT’S BENEFITS AND UNIQUE WAYS TO USE IT!

Feb 23, 2024

Packed with plant-based protein, and especially rich in magnesium, iron, phosphorus, B-vitamins, and loaded with antioxidants, organic Sorghum flour is a powerhouse! It’s so versatile too. It can be used in baking, cooking and even as a thickener for sauces and soups. In most recipes you can replace Sorghum grains at a 1:1 ration and it’s great as a substitute for rice and quinoa. The grain is widely used in India, Asia and Africa. You can also pop Sorghum just like you would popcorn! We have enjoyed it in our home. It’s much smaller than popcorn, but if you can’t do corn, Sorghum is great! Because it’s lighter than popcorn you will want to avoid most air poppers. Here’s a fun educational video on how to pop it that your kids will enjoy!

The United States grows more Sorghum grain than any other place in the world and getting any grain flour fresh is going to be super important for many reasons. For one, the fresher the flour the more bursting with nutrients it will be. Also, your food will be more flavorful! We are not only interested in making nutritious bread for you, but delicious as well. It’s quite simple. Would you rather have a cup of coffee from freshly roasted beans or ones that have been sitting around for months? Our milling company grinds our grain into flour the moment we are ready to order a new batch! So, what you are getting in our loaves is pretty fresh.

For more information on Sorghum, here’s a good article with some great recipes as well.

Enjoy!
