Finger millet: Eleusine coracana.
Adv Food Nutr Res. 2010; 59:215-62.AF

Abstract

Finger millet (Eleusine coracana) is a grass crop grown in Africa, India Nepal, and many countries of Asia. The plant and grain is resistant to drought, pests, and pathogens. It is rich in polyphenols and particularly in calcium. The double headed trypsin, α-amylase inhibitor from this grain has been isolated and characterized extensively. One major use for the grain is the making of fermented beverages after malting. α-Amylase and β-amylase are produced during germination. Food made from malted ragi is traditionally used for weaning and has been the source of low viscosity weaning foods that can deliver more energy per feed than those based on gelatinized starch. There is some evidence that foods from finger millet have a low gylcaemic index and are good for diabetic patients. Decortication, puffing, extrusion, and expansion are some of the new uses that the grain has been put to.
