Nutritional analysis and glucosidase inhibition activity of kodo millet

Gargi G Prakash* and Manohar Shinde

Kodo millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum) is the minor crop and have several nutritional components having benefits against health issues. The present study involves the proximate analysis of kodo millet, was evaluated providing the data that will help in the utilization of grains in food processing. The proximate analysis of the kodo millet recorded the moisture content of 6.0%, crude protein 6.61%, crude fibre 8.5%, crude fat 2.82%, crude ash 0.62% and nitrogen free extract (carbohydrates) 63.62%. The α-glucosidase inhibition of methanol extracts of kodo millet reported the 15.37% in methanol, 49.3% in acid methanol, 48.6% in acid methanol heated, 12% in aqueous and 50.26% in aqueous heated extracts. The above information helps in the nutritional value and inhibitory activity of the kodo millet in various solvents extraction which may provide the idea of preventing or managing the diabetes mellitus.
