India leading the world with largest range of millet products ; 2023 to be Intl Millet year

Hyderabad, Mar 31 (UNI) “India has been leading the world with the largest range of millet products, driven partly by government awareness programs to consumers, industry, farmers and also to its own government departments, according to ICAR-IIMR (Indian Institute of Millets Research of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research).
The need for more nutritious foods and resilient crops that can cope with climate change have been some key reasons behind the government programs,” said Dr Vilas Tonapi, Director, ICAR-IIMR after launching recently ‘ Millet finder,’ discovered a surge in the use of millets, with over a thousand modern convenient products being marketed and sold across all the inhabited continents, at the FoodTec Expo organised by ICRISAT and ICAR-IIMR.
The “Millet Finder” will help users find over 500 products across 30 countries while another 500 products are identified and set to be included and mapped by end of the year by the Smart Food team at ICRISAT, who created the database and will continue growing it.
