Is millet flour supposed to have an afterflavor bitterness?
I have bought millet flour from Bob's Red Mill and Arrowhead Organic Flours and both times the millet flour had a very bitter afterflavor. The "Use By" dates were in the future (2014 and 2015) so they should not have been "old". I contacted both companies -who have EXCELLENT customer service and am awaiting replacements. I had the same experience with sorghum flour.
While I am awaiting the replacements, I tasted the same flours in the bulk bins at a local food coop. Same thing. Very bitter afterflavor.
So is millet flour typically initially sweet tasting with a bitter afterflavor?
