Nutritional and Health Benefits of Millets
Abstract and Figures
The importance of nutrition as a foundation for healthy development is underestimated. Now-a-days people are very conscious about their healthy living practices to overcome metabolic disorders and life style diseases. This publication deals with the review on the scientific empirical studies on the nutritional aspects, functional aspects and health benefits of millets from seed structure to processed products, which are conducted in India and elsewhere across the globe. Further, it deals elaborately with nutritional evaluation of the value added sorghum product technologies that have been developed and standardized under the IIMR-led consortium of NAIP sub-project on millets value chain conducted by NIN. The products have shown to have high nutritional values and the micronutrient studies conducted have reported, these to have relatively low glycemic index and glycemic load. Sorghum/millet processed products recipes and the method of preparation are embedded with content that can be of some use to various stakeholders, researchers, academic fraternity, consumers and entrepreneurs which is timely and is expected to help the researchers. It is hoped that the results published will create awareness and ensure that the highly nutritious millets consumption is popularized worldwide.
