Grain sorghum can take many shapes and sizes from a tight-headed, round panicle to an open, droopy panicle that can be short or tall. There are various types of sorghum including red, orange, bronze, tan, white and black colored sorghum.
Red, orange or bronze sorghum is traditionally grown and used in all segments of the sorghum industry. Tan, cream and white colored sorghum varieties are typically made into flour for the food industry, while black and burgundy varieties contain beneficial antioxidant properties that are utilized in other food applications.
Whole grain sorghum is a great source of fiber and protein that adds a hearty, nutty flavor to recipes. Add whole grain sorghum to salads, cooked dishes, snacks and more to meet the daily servings of whole grains.
