Grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) is considered to be one of the four most important cereal grains used for human consumption. While sorghum is considered to be native to tropical Africa and continues to be a leading cereal grain the most areas of the continent, it came to the United States from France.

The color of the sorghum grain may be white, yellow, red, or brown.  Certified food grade sorghum varieties are white.  

Sorghum is higher in protein and lower in fat than corn. The mineral composition differs only slightly from corn, and the vitamin content in grain sorghum is similar to white corn.

Sorghum is sometimes referred to as kafir, kafir corn, durra, milo, maize, Egyptian corn, African millet, Black Indian millet and pearl millet.    

The grain is an excellent food source when ground into flour and used to make pancakes, porridge and flatbreads.  And, the grain can be popped.
