India’s finance minister has said that the government will promote its production and make India a global hub of millets. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman during her budget speech has addressed coarse grains as Srianna.

In her budget statement, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman stated that the government is trying to make India a worldwide centre of Srianna. India is leading the way in popularising it. He stated that the government will cooperate with local farmers to encourage the production of Sri Anna, which has been eaten in India for generations.

‘Consumption of Shri Anna supports nutrition, food security, and farmer work,’ he remarked, quoting the honourable Prime Minister. We are the world’s top producer and second largest exporter of Sree grain. We cultivate a variety of Srianna varieties, including Jowar, Sri Ragi, Sri Bajra, Srikut, Srianna Ramdana, Kangni, Kutki, Kodo, Cheena, and Sama.’

‘They offer many health advantages and have been a mainstay of our diet for decades,’ he added. I’d want to thank the small farmers for helping to improve the health of my people by farming these grains. The Indian Market Research Institute Hyderabad will now be marketed as a centre of expertise in order to make India a worldwide Srianna powerhouse.

What exactly is Shree Anna? The Finance Minister has referred to millets, or coarse grains, as Shree Anna, which has several advantages. Coarse grains include Jowar, Ragi, Bajra, Kut, Ramdana, Kangni, Kutki, Kodo, China, and Sama. Because they are gluten free, coarse grains, which have been popular in India for millennia, are now gaining popular in western nations as well.

They include a lot of protein, fibre, and antioxidants. Aside from that, coarse grains provide a significant quantity of phosphorus, folate, magnesium, and iron. Millets have more amino acids than other grains, which aid in the formation of proteins in the body. According to a survey published on the top health website Healthline, their ingestion lowers the risk of metal toxicity in the body.

ShriAnn has the following advantages: Millets contain a lot of fibre and non-starchy carbohydrates. These are carbohydrates that do not breakdown and assist to regulate blood sugar levels. They also have a low glycemic index, which keeps blood sugar levels stable. As a result, the usage of coarse grains is recommended for patients with diabetes.

Whole grains lower cholesterol because they include soluble fibre, which causes a sticky material to form in the colon. This sticky material binds fat inside itself, lowering cholesterol levels in the body. According to one study, those with high cholesterol who ate coarse grains had lower levels of bad cholesterol and higher levels of good cholesterol in their bodies.

Many people are intolerant to gluten, thus they avoid eating wheat. Coarse grains are gluten-free, and this is a growing trend. People are opting for gluten-free diets, and coarse grains are the greatest alternative.
