In regions and countries worldwide, there is a sustained surge in value-added applications of sorghum and millets in modern food and beverages products and pet food and animal feed applications. These alternative grains are increasingly important for companies, with growth driven by the need for environmentally sustainable food crops, changing food consumption patterns in developing countries resulting from rapid urbanization and consumer demand for convenient, nutritious, and gluten-free products. Using product examples from the United States, India, and Africa, this chapter describes cutting-edge research in use of sorghum and millets for various applications, as well as innovative processing technologies. Products covered include breakfast cereals and snacks, precooked pasta, unleavened flatbreads, health-promoting products, fortified blended foods used in government-sponsored aid programs, beers and nonalcoholic malt drinks, other nonalcoholic fermented or powder-based beverages, plus pet food and aquatic feed.
