Finger Millet is often ground to a fine power and sold and popularly known as Ragi Flour.
Finger millet is especially valuable as it contains the amino acid methionine. Finger millet can be ground and cooked into cakes,
puddings or porridge. High protein content makes finger millet a very important factor in preventing malnutrition.
The cereal can be an especially good source of protein for vegetarians because of its methionine content that constitutes about
5% of the protein.
Finger millet is also a very rich source of minerals. It has been found to have between 5-30 times the calcium content found in other cereals.
It is also rich in phosphorus, potassium and iron.
Calcium is of course an important component in maintaining bone density and health. Thus, finger millet would be a healthier alternative
to over-the-counter supplements, especially for people who might be at risk of osteoporosis or low hemoglobin levels.
