Abstract

Pearl millet grains are very high in calories- precisely the reason they do wonders for growing children and pregnant
women. Iron deficiency, which is widely prevalent in India, impairs children's physical growth, mental development, and
learning capacity. Anemia is often induced by iron deficiency, and when severe it can increase women's risk of dying in
childbirth. It is a significant source of dietary energy and nutritional security for poor farmers and consumers in several
highly populated regions of India. Pearl millet with elevated iron levels can help reduce iron deficiency and to some
extent, zinc deficiency, in regions of India where it is a staple food crop. Pearl millet is a gluten free grain and is the only
grain that retains its alkaline properties after being cooked which is ideal for people with wheat allergies.
