Physical and nutritive properties of fermented cereal foods

  Fermented cereal porridge, “Ogi” is made from maize, sorghum or millet. Fermented cereal porridges (and gels) are important staple food items for people of the West African sub- region and are also important weaning foods for infants. The qualities of these foods are measured in terms of their nutritive values evidenced in the biochemical properties and the textural characteristics. These...

Evaluation of physical and sensory properties of Iranian Lavash flat bread supplemented with precipitated whey protein (PWP)

  Flat bread is the main staple food for most Iranians and Lavash is commonly consumed flat bread. In this investigation, the effects of addition of precipitated whey protein (PWP) and fermentation time on the physical properties and sensory characteristics of Lavash breads were studied. Dough were prepared with four substitution levels of PWP (25, 50, 75 and 100%, instead of water used for dough making) and...

Storage influence on the functional properties of malted and unmalted maize (Zea mays L ssp mays) and soybean (Glycine max L Merrill) flour blends

  The complementary blends of maize (Zea mays L ssp mays) and soybean (Glycine max L Merrill) were stored for a period of 12 weeks. The maize grains were malted by subjecting it to cleaning, washing, steeping, sprouting, drying, desprouting, milling and packaging. A portion of the maize flour was blended with soybean flour at the ratio of 70:30 (malted maize flour: soybean flour; unmalted maize flour:...
