Finger Millet is packed with nutrition.It is an important staple food in India for people of low income groups. Nutritionally, its importance is well recognised because of its high content of calcium (0.38%), dietary fiber (18%) and phenolic compounds (0.3–3%). They are also recognized for their health beneficial effects, such as anti-diabetic, anti-tumerogenic, atherosclerogenic effects, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.
This cookie uses other flours like chickpea flour, Semolina and wholewheat. All these are nutrient dense ingredients.
