Abstract:
Indian diet includes several cereal based items in it in their day to day life. Cereals are not only good source of complex carbohydrates but also provide substantial amount of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidants. The aim of this study was to produce complementary nutritive malt food that will meet the nutritional requirement and increase the digestibility and bioavailability for infants, youths, children and old aged peoples by addition of protein rich green gram and millets. Millets have been called nutri-cereals since they are rich in micronutrients like minerals and B-complex vitamins. Additionally they are also rich in health promoting phytochemicals. Efforts are made to determine nutritional quality and effect of fortification with foxtail millet and green gram on germinated rice malt. Results of germinated rice fortified with different concentrations of foxtail millet and green gram (T190:05:05, T280:10:10, T3 70:15:15 and C100:0:0) has shown that increase in foxtail millet and green gram concentrations had gradually increased moisture content, crude fibre, protein, fat, ash content and minerals like Ca, Mg, Fe, K. Water absorption index (WAI) and water solubility index (WSI) has decreased with increase in concentration of foxtail millet and green gram oil absorption index and bulk density of germinated rice malt
