Finger millet (Eleusine coracana), forage FeedipediaFinger millet (Eleusine coracana (L.) Gaertn.) is a cereal grass grown mostly for its grain, which is a staple food in many African and South Asian countries (for information concerning the feed uses of the grain, see the Finger millet, grain datasheet).Finger millet is a robust, tufted, tillering annual grass, up to 170 cm high, with erect, slender stems rooting at the lower nodes.
Finger millet is known to be protected from diseases for decades and several blast resistant lines of finger millet have been identified in the past 15 years to identify the source of immunity (Ramappa et al., 2002). Both the physical and chemical composition of the grains determines the mechanisms of resistance to pests and pathogens.
Morphology, physical, chemical and functional Like sorghum, finger millet is highly variable in colour, from brown through red to white, due to anthocyanin pigments and also like sorghum some varieties contain tannins in the testa layer . Data on its starch content are limited, with figures of 55.1% (dry basis) being given for starch  and 74% (dry basis) for carbohydrate . Finger

Physicochemical properties of malted finger millet Oct 11, 2018 · 3.2 Proximate composition of raw and germinated millet. The moisture content of millet ranged from 2.16% to 4.50%, with the highest value from raw pearl millet flour (Table 2).Storage periods of food products can be extended when the moisture content is low as this will prevent microbial infestation (Alozie, Iyam, Lawal, Udofia, & Ani, 2009).The result of the proximate composition
Process And Formulation Of Finger Millet Cookies For The present invention deals with different processed finger millet based on its low glycemic composite cookies with composition comprising of millet flour at 10%, 30%, 50% and 100% to wheat flour and all required ingredients. The invention also provides a process of preparing the low glycemic finger
Nutritional composition and health benefits of finger millet Finger millet grains are gluten-free, non-acid-forming (Muthamilarasan et al., 2016), easy to digest with low glycemic index foods (Manjula & Visvanathan, 2014). ts low glycemic O index food property is reported to be a good choice for people
Sorghum and millets in human nutrition - Home Food and Finger millet Wide variability in the composition of the grain, including its protein content, was reported (Hulse, Laing and Pearson, 1980). Both genetic and environmental factors appear to have an important role in determining the protein content of finger millet (Pore and Magar, 1977; Virupaksha, Ramachandra and Nagaraju, 1975).
Structure, physicochemical properties, and uses of millet Oct 01, 2014 · The major component of millets is starch, which may amount up to 70% of the seed and determines the quality of millet products. This review summarizes the current knowledge of the isolation, chemical composition, structure, physicochemical properties, enzyme susceptibility, modifications, and uses of millet starch.
Process for preparation of finger millet (Eleusine coracana) fermented Drink was standardized with view to develop the product of better nutritional quality. Preliminary trials were conducted to choose the levels of finger millet flour in the fermented drink. The average chemical composition of (PDF) Chemical composition of finger millet (Eleusine The result of the proximate composition indicated that the finger millet f lour contained considerable amount of crude pro tein (8.42 ± 0.05), crude fat (7.9 4 ± 0.06), carbohydrate (73.32 ± 0.23),
