So, what is gierstzaad?

Gierstzaad, also known as pearl millet, is a gluten-free ancient grain with a nutty flavor and crunchy texture. This small, beige-colored seed is commonly used in African and Indian cuisines and is a staple in many traditional dishes, including porridges, stews, and bread. Gierstzaad is a rich source of protein, fiber, and minerals such as iron, magnesium, and phosphorus, making it a nutritious addition to any diet. Its versatility and health benefits have made it increasingly popular in Western cuisine, particularly in gluten-free and plant-based diets.
