In the present study, the hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects of barnyard millet (PRJ-1) were assessed in diabetic patients (30) for a period of three months. The nutritional analysis of the millet was also done and the results on proximate composition were: Crude protein (12g), Crude fat (3.97g), crude fibre (8.50g), Total ash (2.33g), Carbohydrate (73.17g) and physiological energy (376 kcal) whereas mineral composition of barnyard millet was calcium (24.58mg), iron(4.87mg), zinc(5.55mg), magnesium (89.19mg), chromium (0.054mg) and phosphorus (231.5mg). The values of total dietary fibre (13.2g), resistant starch (14.23g), tannin (78%) and total antioxidant activity (62.15) were appreciably good as these components play a major role in reducing diabetic complications. The glycemic index of barnyard millet in the study came as 35.9 categorizing it under the group of low glycemic index foods. The results on hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic studies on diabetes patients revealed a significant decrease in blood glucose (both fasting and post-prandial, glycosylated haemoglobin) and lipid level (except HDL and VLDL level) after supplementation of barnyard millet. The results suggest that barnyard millet being high in nutritional value with hypoglycemic and progressive hypolipidemic properties makes it a safe option for diabetic subjects.
