Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to analyse the dietary fibre content of millets and millets recipes. Dietary fibre from millets binds cholesterol and does not allow it to be absorbed, thus protect from heart diseases. Among all millets, foxtail millet had the highest content of dietary fibre 11.24g/100g. Dietary fibre content of millet dosas ranged between 14.1g and 21.0g, highest in proso millet dosa and lowest in finger millet dosa and compared to rice dosa all millets had higher dietary fibre content. In millet idlis, dietary fibre content was minimum with 11.8g in sorghum and maximum 23.3g in proso millet idli, just like in dosas and dietary fibre of rice idli was close to finger millet idli. Dietary fibre content of millet rotis was minimum with 5.7g in sorghum roti and maximum in foxtail millet roti (14.0g) and when compared, wheat roti had least (3.8g) dietary fibre. In millet meals, dietary fibre ranged between 5.8 to 14.0g, with lowest in sorghum and highest in foxtail millet meal and when compared to millet meals, rice meal had the lowest dietary fibre content. Millet dosa and idlis had better dietary fibre followed by millet meals and least being in rotis.
