Primary processing involves methods like de-hulling, soaking and germination, etc., which makes the millet edible. Secondary processing occurs when fermentation, baking, and puffing techniques. Millets can undergo tertiary processing to produce value-added products.

They also added that there are many pieces of equipment used in millet processing such as de-hullers, millers, flaking machines, and puffing machines. Most commonly used are de hullers, millers, and puffing machines. De-huller is a machine used to remove the millet’s outer layer.
