Saloni Chauhan and Usha Singh
Cereal grains are the main staple food like wheat, rice and number of coarse grain which are now termed as nutricereals like maize, sorghum, bajra, ragi, barely etc. The nutricereals having higher nutrient content. Maize, a nutricereal can be utilized for persons in stress if properly processed. The current study was undertaken to determine the
impact of processing on glycemic index of maize based flour under in vivo
condition. In this study, results revealed that the after incorporating whole bengal gram in maize, the level of glycemic index was found to be lower in case of boiled maize (68.72±0.86) and alkali treated maize (69.01±0.66) as compared to roasted maize (72.15±0.60) and control maize (75.15±0.60). The lower level of glycemic index in maize after boiling and alkali treatment is recommended for persons with Diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular diseases.
