Nutritional & Therapeutic Values of JDP Brown pap (Guinea Corn)
Sorghum, also known as “guinea corn,” is a nutrient-rich grain that we have processed and ground into flour along with other protein packed foods to bring you JDP Brown pap. Including it in your diet offers a number of nutritional and therapeutic benefits.
Calories in Guinea Corn
A cup serving of dry guinea corn contains 652 calories.
Guinea corn contains about the same and sometimes more protein than wheat and many other grains However, the protein is not as readily absorbed because each protein in the grain is surrounded by a tough protein wall that requires more time to digest. About 46 percent of the protein in the guinea corn is absorbed, versus 81 percent in wheat and 73 percent in corn which is why we have fortified it with other protein rich foods like fish, crayfish and soyamilk.
Most of the calories in guinea corn come from its carbohydrate content, making it a good source of energy. A cup serving contains 144 grams of carbohydrates and 16 grams of fiber. Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that your body cannot digest, adding bulk to stool to improve bowel function. In addition, the fiber in the guinea corn can also decrease your risk of heart disease by decreasing blood cholesterol levels. One serving of guinea corn meets 16 percent of your daily value for fiber.
Guinea corn is a low-fat food product, containing 1.6 grams of total fat, 0.8 grams of saturated fat, 2.0 grams monounsaturated fat and 2.8 grams of polyunsaturated fat per cup serving. Choosing more low-fat foods in your diet can help reduce your overall fat intake, lowering your risk of heart disease, certain types of cancers and obesity.
Minerals in Guinea Corn
One nutritional highlight of guinea corn is its mineral content. A cup serving contains 52 milligrams of calcium, 8.4 milligrams of iron, 552 milligrams of phosphorus and 672 milligrams of potassium. Calcium and phosphorus are essential minerals needed for bone health and strength. Adequate intakes of iron support the transportation of oxygen in your body, and help promote cell growth and development. Potassium helps maintain fluid balance, and high intakes improve blood pressure, according to the American Heart Association.
