With just three crops providing more than 40% of calories eaten worldwide, registered dietitians have a vital role to play in shifting diets towards sustainable, biodiverse options. Whole grain sorghum has twice as much fiber as brown rice, thrives in climate-challenged regions, and is a staple of cultural food traditions throughout the African Diaspora, and yet this ancient grain is still underutilized in Western diets. In this session, attendees will learn about the nutritional makeup of whole grain sorghum and how it can be used in simple, delicious meals to help prevent and manage diet-related illness. This session will also explore how the biologic makeup of sorghum can help reduce water losses and provide valuable nutrition in hot, dry climates. Thank you to our friends at the United Sorghum Checkoff Program for sponsoring this session!
