Millet has about the same protein content as wheat (11%) and is high in vitamins and minerals, especially B Vitamins. Millet is usually the main ingredient in most birdseed mixes as it is a softer small seed that can be eaten by all birds, (whole or hulled). Millet is a grain that is excellent to grind for flour, bird seed, porridge, and beer making. Hulled millet is usually used as a food, as opposed to a sprouting seed. Hulled millet will sprout, but with a very poor germination rate. If you are looking to sprout millet, please use whole millet instead.
