Abstract

PROXIMATE ANALYSIS OF PROCESSED PEARL MILLET FLOUR AND SENSORY EVALUATION OF ITS HOMESTEAD PRODUCTS

Dheera Patni* and Dr. Mukta Agrawal

ABSTRACT

Bajra or Pearl Millet (Pennisetum Glaucum) is one of the oldest millet used by our ancestors. It is an essential food crop in arid and semi arid dry regions of asia and Africa. Now bajra are recommended by many health professionals, Dieticians and Nutritionist because of its various health benefits. It is also not very expensive millet which can reduce its consumption but its use has been limited due to presence of anti nutritional compounds such as phenols and tannins that results poor digestibility and poor availability of nutrients. It has been reported the different processing treatments would reduced the amount of anti nutrients in food grains But the changes in the amount of important nutritional compounds with respect to the processing treatment such as milling and germination are yet not clear. Therefore the current research work objective was to estimate the effect of germination on some of the important nutritional qualities of Pearl millet. Pearl Millet was processed and mineral, antinutritional analysis was performed. Homestead Products (Vanilla cake and pearl millet idli) was developed from processed iron rich pearl millet flour. Sensory evaluation of the formulated products was done. Germination has been found to significantly increase the crude protein content high mineral availability of millet flour; thus advantage in weaning food formulations.

Keywords: Pearl millet, Germination, Nutritional, Sensory evaluation, Proximate analysis.
