Abstract:

Realizing the importance of coarse cereals, it has become essential now to justify their role in the food and nutritional security of India; millets are super grains and were used extensively but as a result of urbanization and large scale production and availability of cereals like wheat, rice and corn. In India maize is emerging as third most important crop after rice and wheat. Its importance lies in the fact that it not only used for human food and animal feed but at the same time it is also widely used for corn starch industry, oil production, baby corn, etc. Maize holds a prominent position in Indian Agriculture. The technology of acceptable maize based products can be taken up by house wives at household level as the raw ingredients are available. Various processing techniques will not only help in improving the availability of nutrients but also enhance the shelf life of maize flour. To boost the consumption of maize, it become necessary to develop value added products which can be prepared at home scale as well as commercial scale keeping these facts in view intervention on five selected products were organized in three villages by covering 90 respondents. Perceived feasibility was worked out on five parameters. Knowledge acquisition was found 86.24 percent and 84.92 percent respectively for all products.
