Abstract:
Finger millet (Eleusine coracana L.) is a crop with potentially tremendous but under-explored source of nutraceutical properties as compared to other regularly consumed cereals. Roasting and grinding processes render the grain digestible. On roasting of finger millet it has been observed that it’s functional and phytochemical composition such as moisture, fat, protein, phenols and antioxidant activity tends to decrease slightly whereas total carbohydrate content, ash, fibre increases along with the increase in the bio-availability of minerals like calcium and iron. Thus, this study focused on improving the nutritional quality and increasing the bioavailability of nutrients by roasting the millets for nourishing the health and to promote finger millet utilization for future prospective.
