Finger millet is a rather unique variety of millet that contains the amino acid methionine. Many poor cultures who live on starchy grains are lacking this essential amino acid in their diets, making finger millet an important member of the millet family. Aside from its excellent protein, whole grain finger millet is rich in vitamins and minerals that support immune function, blood glucose control, and good cholesterol.

Like other millet flours, finger millet can be a great choice for vegan bakers interested in gluten free pancakes, breads, biscuits, and other baked goods.
