Pearl Millet in Telugu Language and its benefits

Peal millet Uses

According to research, the phenolic components of pearl millet have a significant antioxidant effect.

The starch of pearl millet is used in making bread and biscuits.

Pearl millet grain yields starch, amylose, protein, lipid, and other essential nutrients.

By reducing phytates and cholesterol in the body, phytochemicals found in pearl millet grains have a beneficial impact on human health.

People with diabetes can lessen the impact of raising blood sugar levels by consuming foods high in fiber and with a low glycemic index that support maintaining healthy blood glucose levels, lowering cholesterol, and assisting in the reduction of body weight.

The glycemic index of pearl millets is low, and they are high in insoluble fiber. This indicates that it boosts your blood sugar slowly rather than suddenly.

Pearl millet is full of slow-digestible starch compared to rapid-digestible starch.

Rapid-digestible starch breaks down fast and is further absorbed by the small intestine very quickly, causing elevated levels of blood glucose, which raises the possibility of type-2 diabetes, obesity, and heart-related diseases.

Foods with a high slow-digestible starch content take longer to digest and absorb in the small intestine, which causes a slow and protracted release of glucose into the bloodstream and a low glycaemic response.

The slow-digestible starch has these advantages because of its low glycaemic index (GI), which lowers the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and becoming obese and overweight.

Pearl millet is used to make easily palatable formulations for infants, the elderly, and convalescents because it contains nutritious ingredients that are good for body growth.

Scientific facts about Pearl millet

The search for new sources of organic food with better functional characteristics and medicinal properties has been sparked by the decline of traditional sources of valuable nutrients needed to meet the daily needs of a growing population.

This pearl millet is regarded as an environmentally friendly crop because it has a higher capacity to absorb CO2 from the air and convert it into oxygen while using less water and requiring fewer inputs like irrigation, fertilizer, and care.

The granules of the pearl millet crop are spherical and polygonal in shape, have holes and deep indentations on their surface, and range in size from little to enormous.

Pearl millet is a superior alternative to processed starchy foods like rice, wheat, corn, and potatoes because of its increased essential nutrient content and gluten-free status.

When compared to other grains, millet starch typically has a higher concentration of resistant starch.

Its starch is therefore extremely resistant to the digestive enzymes that break down starch and releases glucose into the bloodstream very slowly.

It acts as a gelling, thickening, and bulking ingredient, greatly enhancing the food’s textural quality.

The making of custards, sauces, pie fillings, stews, and soups frequently uses millet starch.

Pearl millet has potential uses in a variety of fields, including enzyme production; food and beverage production (as a thickener, fat replacement, and stabilizer); production of nanoparticles for drug delivery; medicinal and pharmaceutical use; and coating and edible film production.
