Finger millet seed coat is an edible material and contains good proportion of dietary fibre, minerals and phytochemicals. The seed coat matter (SCM) forms a by-product of millet milling, malting and decortication industries and can be utilised as composite flour in biscuit preparation. The SCM from native, malted and hydrothermally treated millet contained 9.5–12% protein, 2.6–3.7% fat and 40–48% dietary fibre, besides 3–5% polyphenols and 700–860 mg/100 g of calcium. The biscuits prepared using the composite flour were of crisp texture and exhibited breaking strength of 1480–1690 g compared to control biscuits (1560 g). The biscuits were of mild grey colour (DE = 40–50) and exhibited higher protein, dietary fibre and calcium contents. The sensory evaluation of the biscuits indicated that 10% of SCM from native and hydrothermally processed millet and 20% from malted millet could be used in composite biscuit flour.
