Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to develop a millet based instant health mix by incorporating a probiotic Lb. rhamnosus GG and to evaluate its functional and sensory characteristics. Instant health mix prepared from Millet (ragi, sorghum and pearl millet) and green gram (3:1) was found to be most acceptable for its thin consistency and less sedimentation (8.0) and high nutritive value of protein (19.13g/100g), fibre(5.96g/100g), calcium(298.25mg/100g) and iron(6.57mg/100) respectively. The survival of probiotic strains of Lb. rhamnosus GG was evaluated during storage period showed that there was no loss in total number of added viable cells and it was retained for 3 months in the prepared probiotic product. Sensory characteristics of the product secured a highest score for its overall acceptability of 8.3.
