Bajra is a powerhouse of nutrients and is packed with carbohydrates, protein, amino acids, iron, zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, fibre and multiple vitamins like riboflavin, folic acid, thiamine, niacin and beta carotene.
Bajra is a rich source of fibre, which makes it highly beneficial for those with cholesterol because of its cholesterol-lowering properties. Since the grain is light on the stomach, it can be the go-to grain for those dealing with stomach ulcers and acidity. Bajra not only helps relieve constipation but also keeps it at bay. 100 grams of bajra contains 10 grams of protein, which makes it a good source of protein for vegetarians. Since bajra is digested slowly, it maintains a steady glucose level, which further makes it a perfect choice for diabetics.
