Mohini Gupta, Neha Qumar, Noor Fatima and Madhuri

Millets are amazing in their nutrition content. The millet is highly nutritious and contains important amino acids and also has several health benefits such as anti-diabetic, antitumerogenic, atherosclero-genic effects, and antioxidant. In this article, we analyzed the awareness and consumption of millets by respondents. The present study was done on different millets which are rich sources of macro and micronutrients whose consumption is very less in the general population due to lack of awareness or ignorance. Therefore, the effort was made to develop products. Two commonly consumed products namely Appe and Idli were developed from millets, Sorghum millet, Pearl millet, and Finger millet 60 gm each. Acceptability evaluation of prepared recipes was performed by semi trained panel through 9 point Hedonic rating scale test. The result revealed that among the recipes (Appe and Idli) prepared by adding 60 gm millets in which Sorghum millet products were acceptable when compared to products developed by Pearl and Finger millet. The result of the Nutritive value indicated that Pearl millet had an appreciable amount of Protein, Energy, Carbohydrates, Fiber, Iron, and Calcium. Therefore, it can be concluded that products developed from Sorghum millet was acceptable by the panel member but nutritive value was found in pearl millet.
