Regular millet consumption helpful in combating anemia : ICRISAT study

Hyderabad, Oct 19 (UNI) Regular consumption of millets would improve hemoglobin and serum ferritin levels to reduce iron deficiency or anemia, which is rising globally, according to a new research study report released by ICRISAT here on Tuesday.
The recently published research is a meta-analysis of 22 studies on humans and eight laboratory studies on millets consumption and anemia, was undertaken by seven organizations across four countries and was led by the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT).
“The study concluded that millets would provide all or most of the daily dietary iron requirements of an average person. Although the amount of iron provided depends on the millet variety and its form of processing, the research clearly showed that millets would play a promising role in preventing and reducing high levels of iron deficiency anemia,” highlighted Dr S Anitha, the study’s lead author and Senior Nutritionist at ICRISAT.
