Wonder Grains are millets,  a group of highly variable small-seeded grassesIt has a sweet nutty flavour.It is gluten free & rich in calcium,fibre,protein and minerals.It has high nutritional values when compared with rice and wheat. 
If you’re a vegetarian looking for a healthy protein source, you can include tapioca / sago / sabudana in your diet. It contains large amounts of protein that can help muscle growth ,strengthening, healing. It improves bone health, keeps blood pressure level under control, and mainly it helps to boost up  your energy levels.
