Potential use of roots of orange-fleshed sweet potato genotypes in the production of β-carotene rich chips in Nigeria

Orange-fleshed sweet potato (OFSP) varieties are being propagated in Nigeria to aid in combating dietary vitamin A deficiency in the country due to their high content of β-carotene (a precursor of vitamin A in humans). Tuberous roots of yellow and orange fleshed sweet potato (OFSP) genotypes were assessed in Nigeria for their potential usage in the production of fried pro-vitamin A rich chips.

Variation in technological and nutritional parameters of maize treated with essential oils during storage

Clausena anisata (Rutaceae) and Plectranthus glandulosus (Lamiaceae) is applied on the corn grains during conservation limit insect’s attacks. In addition to this first use, the present work aims to evaluate the potential of these oils to preserve technological and nutritional qualities of treated grains during 5 months of storage. Investigations carried on grains treated three times consecutively...
