Abstract:
Grains are a staple and major part of the f human diet. Multigrain products are made by combining more than two grains. They give more nutrients than two grains. They give more than regular single grain consumption and fulfil deficiencies of nutrients of other grains. Processing of grains may lead to the destruction of nutrients from grain therefore different types of grain are mixed to make multigrain food products. Different types of bioactive compounds are present in grains. They do not give any nutrients to the body but they play role in physiological activities which gives health benefits to the body. Bioactive compounds are like fatty acids, minerals, vitamins, prebiotic, probiotic, dietary fibre, carotenoids, enzymes, antioxidants and phytochemicals. These bioactive compounds help in the prevention of various chronic diseases as well as keep your body healthy. In this review, we discuss about multigrain products and their nutrition, the effect of processing on grains and major bioactive compounds in grains and their health benefits.
