In-Vitro Study for Evaluation of Proximate Composition, Phytochemical & Neutraceutical Properties of Different Millet Samples

Lydiya Vandana

Abstract: Millets are members of poaceae family are loaded with potent bioactive components like Phenols, Flavonoids tannins, etc which has been linked with potential antioxidant activities. These properties are surely believed to prevent the deterioration of human health. The present study deals with in-vitro study for evaluation of proximate composition, phytochemical and neutraceutical properties of different millets. The proximate analysis revealed the presence of Moisture Content (5.9-8.9 %), Ash (2.0- 4.5 %), Crude Protein (8.5-13.2 %), Fat (1.8-7.1 %), Carbohydrate (59.9-70.1) & Crude Fibre (2.2-11.5 %). Phytochemical studies showed a considerable amount of Phenolics, Flavonoids & Tannins in all samples, whereas alkaloids and Saponins were absent in some of the millet samples. These results showed that the selected millets contains essential nutrients which favourably competes well with those staple cereals and said to be a promising neutraceutical with wide health benefits and for use in herbal medicine to fight against various diseases.
