Who doesn’t love a noodle, right? What if we had noodles made out of Sorghum? Wouldn’t that be the ultimate dream?
Without much h ado, introduce the Sorghum Noodles. Now you don’t have to compromise between taste and health!
Do you know what is interesting about sorghum? Unlike most cereals, sorghum is not just a food crop, it finds use in a lot of industries. It is one of the most efficient crops in the conversion of solar energy and resourceful use of water.
Depending on the use, sorghum is grown in four different ways.
Sorghum as Grain
Sorghum grain can vary in size from small droopy to tight-headed and in color from red, orange, bronze, tan, white and black. Nothing less than a rainbow, right? But different colors!
The tan and white varieties are usually ground into flour for making food products. Red, orange, and bronze find their application in other sorghum industries. Black and burgundy type are antioxidant-rich and also find their use in the food industry
Sorghum as Forage
Sorghum that is grown for forage purposes can grow up to 15 feet in height. These are used for hay production, grazing pastures, etc.
Sorghum noodles as Biomass
As the name suggests, this variety of sorghum is used in making bio-energy. It is the tallest amongst all in the sorghum family measuring around 20 feet in height.
Sorghum noodles as Sweetener
We are all familiar with how sugarcane is crushed and the juice is taken out, right? It is a common sight one can see in the Indian streets. Similarly, sweet sorghum is harvested and its stalks are crushed to produce the sweet syrup. The grains do not find much use in this variety. Sorghum syrup is used as a sweetener to produce rum and whiskey.
Nutritional Value of Sorghum Noodles
Though Sorghum hasn’t been a popular food option in most parts of the world, it is packed with a lot of amazing benefits.
Let’s take a look at the nutritional value of a 100g pack of Sorghum noodles.
1. For Blood Circulation
Sorghum contains two of the most important minerals essential for blood circulation – Iron and Copper. Iron is essential for the formation of red blood cells and copper to absorb iron into the blood. A single bowl of sorghum will help keep conditions like anemia out of your way forever!
2. For Gluten-Free Diet
A lot of people, both young and old, are gluten intolerant and suffer from conditions like celiac disease. Sorghum is the best option for such people as it is completely gluten-free, unlike the much more popular wheat and rice.
3. For Weight Loss
Do you always see yourself going to the kitchen often? Are you someone who wants to lose weight but cannot control these hunger attacks? Sorghum is the perfect solution for you. Being rich in fiber gives the stomach a feeling full at all times and lessens your kitchen visits
4. For Strong Bones
Did you know that to absorb adequate levels of calcium, you need magnesium? Well, if you did not, now you know! Sorghum is a storehouse of magnesium, which thus helps maintain the body’s magnesium levels as well. So the next time you think of fighting with your brother or sister, you know what to eat right!
5. For Diabetes
Sorghum is a rich source of carbohydrates. So is rice or wheat. What is the big deal? Well, with rice or wheat, you also have sugars along with carbs which is a deadly combination. The carbs in sorghum make sure that the blood sugar levels rise or fall gradually and not in peaks or sudden drops.
6. For a Protein-Rich Diet
Cell regeneration, stronger muscles. You name it and protein is one of the most indispensable elements in the human body. A cup of sorghum has 22 grams of protein. Believe it or not!
