Chemical composition and pasting properties of tapioca grits from different cassava varieties and roasting methods

This study investigated the chemical composition and pasting properties of tapioca grits from different cassava varieties and roasting methods. Tapioca grits (partially gelatinized irregular flakes from roasted cassava starch), were produced from three different cassava varieties (Odongbo, TMS 30572 and Oko-iyawo) and two roasting methods (traditional and rotary dryer). The chemical composition and pasting properties of...

Drawback of loop-mediated isothermal amplification

Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) was a novel nucleic acid amplification method that amplified DNA with high specificity, efficiency and rapidity under isothermal conditions using a set of four specially designed primers and a DNA polymerase with strand displacement activity. In our research, LAMP was developed to detect foodborn Salmonella in raw milk, a set of six primers, two outer, two inner...
