Abstract:

Modern man faces a great many awful diseases and disorders which were not even known to ancient man. Dietary patterns were merely responsible for this deadly situation. Hence replacing empty calorie foods with nutritious grain-millets thus helps to reduce the burden of malnutrition and also prevents and manages modern metabolic disorders. The present study focuses on the evaluation of physico-chemical, functional, textural and nutrient composition of little millet flakes. Proximate analysis of little millet flakes was evaluated by the standard procedures of AOAC. The little millet flakes exhibited dull, creamy white, small, thin and crispy, irregular shaped, dry and light in weight hues with ‘L’ (67.07), ‘a’ (2.70) and ‘b’ (15.09) values. Bulk density and true density were 1.09 g/mL and 1.26 g/mL respectively. The millet flakes had water holding capacity of 51.95 % and water absorption capacity of 194.67 %. The hardness of little millet flakes was 319.157force/g respectively. The millet flakes had moisture, fat, protein, total ash, crude fibre and carbohydrates of 10.46, 2.70, 8.0, 2.04, 8.74 and 68.06 % respectively.
