Nutrient Booster: Sorghum

We love the addition of sorghum to this recipe not only because of it’s unique texture and delicious taste, but because of it’s amazing nutritional benefits. Sorghum is a naturally gluten-free grain that provides protein, fiber, iron, vitamin B6, niacin, magnesium and more! Plus, sorghum is rich in antioxidants, helping your body fight free radicals and stay healthy. For more information, recipes and more, visit the Simply Sorghum website.
