    2 mins read

    Ragi, known as finger millet in English, is a popular millet across India because of its nutritional properties. It's rich in calcium, iron, and vitamins B1, B3. It's available at affordable prices, and hence, is a typical inclusion in families belonging to lower socio-economic strata.

    Ragi flour is used to make many dishes like cookies, dosa, ladoo, roti, etc. But when it comes to babies, every mom prefers to make it more easily digestible by sprouting the grains at home and shade dry them and mill them to flour, called as ragi malt. The consumption of ragi also benefits moms to keep up their calcium levels high, to keep the bones strong, and to combat osteoporosis. Babies and kids who consume ragi have stronger bones and better iron levels.
