Millets are nutritious food and they are rich in phytochemicals, fiber and minerals. Antioxidant activity was highest in sports food mix compared to flakes and cookies. Bran fractions obtained as milling by-products may be used as a natural source of antioxidants and as a value-added product in the preparation of functional food ingredients and/or for enrichment of certain products.
