About Kodo Millet

Kodo is very rich in dietary fibre and protein in addition to all the general millet characteristics (gluten-free, low glycemic index, high fibre, etc). It has a high antioxidant content and it is highly beneficial for diabetes patients.

Kodo Millet is called as Haarka (in Kannada), Arikelu (in Telugu), Varagu (in Tamil) and Kodon (in Hindi)
