Abstract:

Nutritional and physico-chemical properties are very important factors in food product development in this regard a study was carried out to know the nutritional and physico-chemical characteristics of nine foxtail millet genotypes developed at Agricultural Research Station, Hagari along with the check variety. The genotype HN-46 recorded highest 1000 grain weight. The volume of thousand grains was high inHN-13 (2.5 ml). The bulk density of ten genotypes ranged from 0.75 to 2.20. The protein content of HMT 100-1(13.29g) was high among all the genotypes followed by HN-43 genotypes (13.10 g), The fat content of HMT 100-1 was high (3.83) whereas the lowest fat content was in the genotype HN-43 (2.80). The crude fibre in HN-43 was more (2.98) whereas the total mineral content was high in Sia3162 and HN-46 (2.0g). The Energy value of HMT100-1 (3.79) was high compared to other genotypes. The low calorific value was noted in HN-46 and Sia 2644 (363 Kcal).
