  title={Kodo millet-nutritional value and utilization in Indian foods},
  author={Sumedha S. Deshpande and Debabandya Mohapatra and Manoj Tripathi and R. H. Sadvatha},
Kodo millet, one of the ancient grains of the world, originated from Africa and domesticated in India few thousand years ago is a draught resistant plant. This millet crop is grown in arid and semi-arid regions of African and Asian countries. In India, Kodo millet grown mostly in the Deccan region and the cultivation extends to the foothills of Himalayas. Kodo millet is rich in dietary fiber and minerals like iron, antioxidant. The phosphorus content in kodo millet is lower than any other…

Ethnobotanical study of small millets from India: Prodigious grain for nutritional and industrial aspects
India is the largest grower of minor millets and the cultivation of these small-seeded millets has declined steadily over the past few decades due to their lower economic competitiveness with major
Production Status, Nutritional Aspects and Health Benefits of Millets - A Review
Millets are known as one of the most important cereal grains and play a significant role in traditional diets in many regions and are used in food fortification to overcome against micro nutrient deficiencies.
Assessment of Nutritional Composition of Different Cultivars of Kodo and Kutki Millets
India is the leading producer of small millets namely kodo millet (kodo), little millet (kutki) finger millet (ragi), foxtail millet (kangni), barnyard millet (sawan) and proso millet (cheena).
Nutritional, Functional Role of Kodo Millet and its Processing: A Review
They are small to medium size crops that are cultivated throughout the tropics and subtropical region and can sustain drought condition crop and have long storage period without insect damage.
Formulation and Evaluation of Pulav Prepared from Kodo Millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum)
Millets are one of the oldest foods known to humans and possibly the first cereal grain to be used for domestic purposes. Millets are small-seeded grasses that are hardy and grow well in dry zones as
Minor Millets: Profile and Ethnobotanical Scenario
Minor millets are an agronomic community of genetically diverse species of cereal grasses, well adapted to a range of marginal growing conditions where major cereals are relatively ineffective, such
Studies of Genetic Parameters for Yield and Yield Attributing Traits of Kodo Millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum L.)
Kodo millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum L.) is a small grained cereal belonging to family Poaceae (Gramineae) widely distributed in damp habitats across the tropics and subtropics of the World.
Estimation of nutritive composition of seven small millets
Small millets are one of the underutilized groups of cereal grains. Millets are considered as rich source of energy, carbohydrate and protein as compared to other cereals but have more calcium, iron,
Modern Processing of Indian Millets: A Perspective on Changes in Nutritional Properties
Globally, billions of people are experiencing food insecurity and malnutrition. The United Nations has set a global target to end hunger by 2030, but we are far from reaching it. Over the decade,
Genetic and genomic resources for improving proso millet (Panicum miliaceum L.): a potential crop for food and nutritional security
The present review enumerates the progress made in genetics, genomics, and other omics of proso millet that would pave way for improvement using biotechnological as well as breeding interventions and elaborates a roadmap for improving this crop in the mainstream cropping system.


Millets: Nutritional composition, some health benefits and processing — A review
The nutritional significance of millets demands for an examination of the nutritional characteristics and functional properties of different millet cultivars as well as developing value added products from millets.
Nutritional properties of minor millets: neglected cereals with potentials to combat malnutrition
Minor millets categorized as coarse cereals are staple food for the tribal people where cultivation of major cereals like rice, wheat and maize is either not popular or fail to produce substantial yield and are underutilized and neglected.
Studies on Development and Storage of Kodo Millet Based Pasta
Minor millets are highly nutritious products and also most neglected food material in major parts of the world. Kodo millet is one among them which is very rich in carbohydrate and crude fibre.
A Study on Millets Based Cultivation and Consumption in India
Millets are small-seeded grasses that are hardy and grow well in dry zones as rain-fed crops, under marginal conditions of soil fertility and moisture.
Protein, calcium, iron, and amino acid content of selected wild and domesticated cultivars of finger millet
The results indicate that the nutritional value of finger millet may be significantly improved by selective crossbreeding of the cereal's wild and domesticated cultivars.
Diversity in Kodo millet,Paspalum scrobiculatum
Weedy kodo is harvested with the crop, making it difficult to distinguish wild and cultivated complexes of P. scrobiculatum, which commonly invades fields of kodo millet, obscures racial differentiation.
Sorghum and millets
Sorghum and millets constitute a major source of calories and protein for millions of people in Africa and Asia and rank fifth and sixth in terms of total production.
Selection criteria for culm strength in Kodo millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum L.) to suit mechanical harvesting
Kodo millet is an important small millet crop suited to dry land and subsistence farming in India. Due to scarcity of agricultural manpower, farm mechanization turns out to be inevitable to sustain
