Sorghum is a grain, a source of health enhancing nutrients and compounds. Sorghum contains resistant starch ie starch which is resistant to digestion, thus acts as a fuel for friendly bacteria in the intestine, indirectly improving the digestive system. Resistant starch along with the proteins helps maintain blood sugar levels and control appetite. Sorghum also contains bioactive compounds such as anthocyanins, tannins and polycosanols which help fight lifestyle diseases.
