  1. 1. Complementary porridge based on pearl millet and cow pea : the effect of traditional processing techniques and cooking methods on pasting properties and in vitro starch digestibility

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Signe Christerson; [2023]
    Keywords : Cow pea; pearl millet; traditional processing techniques; germination; fermentation; soaking; pasting properties; starch digestibility; energy density;

    Abstract : In Mozambique, malnutrition in children under 5 years is a serious concern. The condition is thought to be owing to nutritionally inferior diets and improper feeding practices on a mainly cereal-based diet, where porridges from millet- and legume-flours constitute the major staple food.

  2. 2. The Production and Characteristics of an Orange Fleshed Sweet Potato Yogurt

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Ariam Kunfu; [2023]
    Keywords : Sweet potato; fermentation; Ghana; yogurt; L. bulgaricus; S. thermophilus; food technology and nutrition; Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Abstract : Yogurt is an ancient food, used for a better preservation of milk. Milk gets fermented by Streptococcus thermophilicus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus (lactic acid bacteria, LAB) which converts the lactose present in the milk to lactic acid. These probiotics support the microbial population balance of the gastrointestinal tract. READ MORE

  3. 3. Production of filamentous fungal biomass on waste-derived volatile fatty acids for ruminant feed supplementation and it's in vitro digestion analysis

    University essay from Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi

    Author : Mohammadali Bouzarjomehr; [2022]
    Keywords : VFAs volatile-fatty-acids ; Fungi production; Feed production.; Fermentation processes; Aspergillus oryzae; A. oryzae fungal biomass; Sustainability; Rumen fluids; Evaluation of the digestibility of the produced fungal biomass; TT method analysis; Gas production method; Nylon bag method analysis;

    Abstract : Single cell proteins such as that of edible filamentous fungal biomass are considered as a promising sustainable source of animal feed supplementation. Filamentous fungi can be cultivated on different organic substrates including volatile fatty acids (VFAs) such as acetic, propionic, and butyric acids. READ MORE

  4. 4. Real time estimations of kLa and viscosity in a fermentation pilot plant

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Arvid Norberg; [2022]
