Millets: A Nutritional Powerhouse for the Future. Millets are a group of small-seeded grains that have been gaining attention for their nutritional value and their potential to help address the challenge of global food insecurity. They include grains such as jowar, bajra, ragi, kangni, Kutki, Kodo, Cheena, kuttu, and jhangora (Sanva). With their high protein and fibre content, millets have the potential to provide key nutrients to those in developing countries, and to those who need to reduce their consumption of grains such as wheat and rice. Millets are also gaining attention for their therapeutic properties and are used in Ayurvedic medicines.

As global food insecurity continues to be a pressing problem, millets offer a potential solution. With their ability to grow in harsh and dry climates, they can help to reduce hunger and poverty in areas that are unable to produce other grains. They are also highly resilient to climate change.

The following four technical know-hows on “MILLETS” are developed by support of NRDC at Centre of Excellence for Nutri-Cereals (Small Millets) at UAS, GKVK, Bengaluru, and are available for commercial exploitation through NRDC:

1.  Protein Rich / fortified foxtail millet flakes

2.  Protein Rich /fortified little millet flakes

3.  Protein Rich / fortified sorghum flakes

4.  Protein Rich / fortified white ragi flakes

Ingredients used: Millets and Proteins

Methodology/Process: Extrusion, flaking, Drying and Roasting

These flakes can be consumed along with hot milk as breakfast cereals and also in masala form of flakes as healthy snacks. Kindly Contact us for Licensing & Commercialization of Technology.
