Abstract:

Millet is a highly nutritious food recommended for children, elders. Millet represents 85% is used as food. Its production is majorly contributed in Nigeria, It is also a staple food for Namibia and Uganda where it’s consumption is higher mostly 20 to 25%. A pilot facility was established at ICRISAT for millets primary processing to promote entrepreneurship qualities in case of small scale business enterprises and to provide value addition to the millets through its primary processing. Different machines were established in the pilot facility include De-stoner, Aspirator and Grader, De-huller, Millet mill, Roaster, Peanut de-skinner/Splitter, Flour mill, Flour Sifter, Flour Blender, Peanut butter mill, Planetary Mixer and Cup sealing machine etc. The major objective is to develop Peanut-Millet spreads and millet meal using primary processing machinery this pilot facility i.e. removal of stone, dehulling, roasting and milling was done using pilot facility and Shelf life studies were carried out for the two products under accelerated conditions at 37ºC and 92% of Relative humidity. These products found to be nutritionally rich and giving good shelf life for 3 Months by following good manufacturing and hygiene conditions.
