Abstract:
Foxtail millet (Setaria italica L.) is one of the ancient crops that are largely grown in semi-arid and arid climatic regions of Asia, Africa and India. Foxtail millet consists of prominent levels of fibre, mineral, protein, phytochemicals and other bio-active compounds. Inspite of the nutritional benefits of foxtail millet, the consumption of this millet is less. The present study was conducted to formulate nutritious rich millet idli mix and comparision of the biochemical composition and sensory qualities of those with traditional rice-based idli mix. The present study concentrated in the area of value addition to millets. The present study constituted the formulation of nutritious rich millet idli mix, and comparision of the biochemical composition and sensory qualities of those with traditional rice-based idli mix. Idli prepared by incorporating Foxtail millet recorded values as protein (13–15%), fat (2.0–5.0%), ash content (1–2%) and crude fibre (2.0–4%). The results obtained for idli prepared by incorporation of millets, recorded high values where as traditional idli recorded as fat (0.8%), ash (1.54%), protein (7.2%), crude fibre (1.08%). During the different processing steps involved in preparation of idli, fermentation evidently decreased the tannin content when millets were incorporated in idli mix. Overall acceptability in sensory evaluation revealed that millet based products were liked moderately. The study revealed that the idli prepared by incorporation of millets was nutrition rich when compared to the traditional idli. It was also observed that the processing procedures used were capable of removing anti-nutritional factors.
