Author(s): Nidhee Sachan and Dr. Purnima Shah
This study was carried out to determine the proximate composition, Mineral content and Antioxidant compounds of pearl millet flour. Proximate analysis was performed using standard AOAC methods, mineral contents were determined using atomic absorption spectrometry while the antioxidant were analysed using standard methods. The results revealed that the moisture content of 10.70±0.10, ash content of 1.23±0.01 g/100 g and crude protein content of 8.40±0.10 g/100 g. The value of the mineral content of Iron 14.70±0.03 μg/mg, Zinc 01.84±0.01 mg/100 g and calcium content of 16.26±0.02 mg/100 g. the antioxidant analysis was performed The total carotenoid content0.44±0.003 mg/100 g, DPPH Activity 31.87±2.0 QDE/g of dw and Ferric ion Reducing Antioxidant Power 11.2±0.005FSE/g of dw in pearl millet flour. results obtained indicate that pearl millet good source of protein, dietary fibre, iron, Zinc and calcium.
