Because they may be accessible for a significantly lower cost than other items, finger millets—the primary crop in human nutrition—are regarded as a healthful diet for low-income populations. In Africa's West, East, and Great Lakes Regions, it is a reliable source of food. Furthermore, native to Ethiopia, it can withstand drought well. The chemical makeup of various finger millet types is crucial in determining which have a high nutritional value. Ethiopian research on the crop's chemical make-up is, however, lacking. This analysis evaluates the nutritional benefits, overall health, and application of finger millet in value-added foods. Its product is one of the most significant and is widely grown in several locations of Ethiopia and Eritrea. This little millet provides an essential amino acid in the form of foodstuffs lacking in leucine, isoleucine, methionine, and phenylalanine. Due to the polyphenol and fiber content, it is also useful for various health advantages, including antioxidant, anti-diabetic, anti-atheroclerogenic, and anti-tumorigenic actions. Generally speaking, these millets are crucial for many items and are also utilized as a healthful food for newborns when fermented. They are also recognized as a significant source of fiber for diabetes patients.
