Sorghum roti is rich in fibre, which promotes the feeling of fullness in the body. This in-turn helps avoid over-eating, helping enter the state of calorie-deficit at the end of the day. Apart from that, the fibre content also smoothens the bowel movement which stimulates the digestive system and, thereby, helps in maintaining optimal weight. Also, jowar contains complex carbohydrates, which get digested slowly and, thus, promotes a gradual rise in blood sugar. Therefore, it is also ideal for people who are diabetic.
