Thank you for writing to us. Please note that the rice kernel of Foxtail millet and the bran are both of pretty much the same color – yellow, sometimes a lighter tone, sometimes a deeper tone. If you are not able to cook it just like you would cook paddy rice, then you have the grain with its husk still intact. Once the husk is removed, we get the millet rice that is digestible and nutritious too.
To confirm that it is indeed the grain still has its husk on, please take a couple of grains and crush it using a pestle or a rolling pin or just a stone. You will very likely be able to see the husk break and the rice inside get crushed leaving behind the empty husk.
Please go back to the vendor you bought it from, register a complaint and exchange it for foxtail millet rice.
