Advanced Study on Phytochemical Screening for Antioxidant Properties of Germinated Foxtail Millet

Phytochemicals are a diverse group of plant-derived bioactive non-nutrient compounds that are an essential part of the human diet. The aim of this study was to look for phytochemicals in raw and germinated foxtail millets. It’s also known as Italian millet, German millet, Chinese millet, or Hungarian millet. Carbohydrates, alkaloids, fixed oils and fats, terpenoids, and cardiac glycosides were detected in both raw and germinated foxtail millets. Amino acids were not found in raw but were present in germinated seeds, suggesting that germination has a significant impact on amino acid bioavailability. The lack of quinones in the extracts meant that they had not been oxidised during storage. Antioxidants are in high demand in today’s world because they help to neutralise free radicals that are created as a result of stress, pollution, ageing, and poor eating habits.
