National Sorghum Month

by Anne Middleton, on June 24th, 2015

June is National Sorghum Month.  Also known as milo, sorghum is an ancient cereal grain and was collected 8000 years ago in Southern Egypt.  Sorghum was domesticated in Ethiopia and Sudan and from there moved throughout all of Africa, where it remains an important cereal grain. Why do we care?  It’s gluten-free.  While 40,000 to 60,000 Americans have been diagnosed as celiac, there could be as many as 3 million undiagnosed. A gluten-free diet incorporating sorghum also has been adopted by many with autism, ADHD and irritable bowel syndrome.

If you don’t want to rely on pre-packaged gluten-free foods, your cell phone and tablet can be a powerful tool to help you discover new and interesting ways to incorporate sorghum and other gluten-free choices into your meals.  If you’re not sure what’s gluten-free or not, the Apple app store has the Is That Gluten Free app that catalogues the gluten-free status of some of your favorite brand name foods.  With free shipping on all orders of $25 or more at T-Mobile, you can put that app on your new Iphone for your next grocery excursion.
