Antioxidant properties of various solvent extracts of mulberry (Morus indica L.) leaves
Abstract The antioxidant properties and total phenolic contents of methanol, acetone and water extracts of mulberry ( Morus indica L.) leaves were examined. Various experimental models including ironExpand
Evaluation of antioxidant activity of some plant extracts and their heat, pH and storage stability
Abstract In the present study, three plant foods, namely, drumstick leaves ( Moringa oleifera ), mint leaves ( Mentha spicata ) and carrot tuber ( Daucus carota ) were extracted with ethanol andExpand
Evaluation of antioxidant activity of some plant extracts and their application in biscuits
Natural antioxidants have gained considerable interest in recent years for their role in preventing the auto oxidation of fats, oils and fat containing food products. In the present study, threeExpand
Isolation and Characterization of Starch from Pearl Millet (Pennisetum typhoidium) Flours
Pearl millet, an underutilized crop, is a relatively good source of nutrients and has varied uses over cereals. New applications must be explored to popularize the millet. In the present study, flourExpand
In vitro Starch Digestibility and Nutritionally Important Starch Fractions in Cereals and Their Mixtures
Dietary carbohydrates are characterized with respect to both chemical composition and likely site, rate and extent of digestion. Starch is divided into rapidly digestible starch (RDS), slowlyExpand
Physico-chemical characteristics of defatted rice bran and its utilization in a bakery product
The results reveal that defatted rice bran can be incorporated in breads upto 10% and 15% as such or with bread improvers respectively, as source of fiber and natural antioxidant, as a functional ingredient. Expand
Influence of Processing on Dietary Fiber, Tannin and in Vitro Protein Digestibility of Pearl Millet
From the nutritional point of view, data on dietary fiber content, tannin and in vitro protein digestibility of processed millet is of importance, because millets are never eaten raw. Effects ofExpand
Evaluation of antioxidant and antimicrobial properties of finger millet polyphenols (Eleusine coracana).
It can be inferred that the polyphenols are responsible for the microbial activity of the millet and the results indicate that potential exists to utilise finger millet seed coat as an alternative natural antioxidant and food preservative. Expand

Due to partial separation of the bran fraction, semi refined flour was low in antinutrients which improved its mineral bioaccessibility making it nutritionally superior. Expand
Glycaemic responses to cereal-based Indian food preparations in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and normal subjects
The in vivo glycaemic responses to six cereal-based foods traditionally consumed in South India were evaluated in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and healthy volunteers and the in vitro starch digestibility and nutrient composition of the foods were studied. Expand
