    Default Can you eat millet raw?

    Hi. Im wondering if you can eat millet raw. If so, do you have to grind it like flaxseed? Or do you have to cook millet to eat it?
    Thanks in advance.

    I believe you can eat it raw if you sprout it first - I don't think I've ever tried but these people say you can:

    Otherwise I would imagine it could be rather chewy/indigestible raw.

    agreed harpy - soak, then sprout for maximum goodness huachita.

    as to grinding it, i really don't know if you can use it in crackers etc the same way flax/linseeds are used.
