Bengal gram is highly nutritious , has a rich flavour and aroma, is amazingly delicious and gets easily digested. It is used as a healthy diet to treat malnutrition in children. Microcore studies confirms that the roasted Bengal gram has the low molecular mass protein when compared with when compared with native bengal gram (whole, dhal).Roasted bengal gram contains rich in protein (22.5gm), low moisture content (10.7gm), low fat (5.2 gm), rich in carbohydrate (59.8%), higher Energy Kcal (372 mg) than Bengal gram whole and dhal. Higher amount of arginine (570 mg/gm), methionine (440 mg/gm), tryptophan (360 mg/gm) and leucine (580 mg/gm) for roasted bengal gram when compared with Bengal gram whole and dhal were analyzed using amino acid profile. In elemental analysis, Roasted bengal gram contains higher amount of phosphorous (96.90gm), Calcium (139.75gm), Magnesium (4.98gm) and iron (4.25gm) when compared with Bengal gram (whole, dhal). Moderate amount of sodium (129.40gm) was present in roasted bengal gram. The SDS-PAGE result evident that the unique of puffing and roasting method helps the deoplymerize the molecular mass and enhances solubility and protein digestibility of the roasted Bengal gram protein and intended to be used in malnutrition in children.
