Abstract:
Malt mix prepared using germinated malted foxtail millet, roasted Bengal gram and milk powder were added with jaggery or honey and sensory evaluation carried out by 15 semi-trained panellists. It was found that the sensory parameters of malt mix with jaggery consisting of one part foxtail millet plus two parts roasted Bengal gram dal and with honey two parts foxtail millet and one part roasted Bengal gram dal was most accepted. The more the foxtail millet in the malt mix the better were the sensory attributes. Addition of sweeteners like jaggery and honey instead of table sugar are more beneficial as jaggery is a rich source of minerals and honey is considered a magical food as per Ayurveda. The combination of foxtail millet with jaggery and honey showed nutritional benefits as these are rich sources of fibre, antioxidants and minerals.
