Description

Pearl millet is a critical food security crop throughout the semi-arid tropics of the world. The crop produces grain in harsh conditions and is highly nutritious, yet quickly develops rancidity after milling. Any flour not used quickly must be discarded, creating potential for waste while also creating significant inconvenience for the women of the household who are most often responsible for freshly milled product each day.
