Millets are ancient crops that occupy a unique place in Indian origin and are mentioned in the oldest Vedic scriptures. Renowned as nutrient powerhouses and resilient crops, millets serve to meet food and nutritional security. Unfortunately, rice cultivation and Westernized food culture have replaced millet consumption, treating it as "poor man’s food." Realizing the role of millets in combating malnutrition and their potential health benefits, the Food and Agriculture Organization approved the year 2023 as the International Millet Year, declared by the United Nations General Assembly. This book is most relevant to students, food technologists, and the scientific fraternity, providing insights into millet utilization through converging innovative food technologies.
