Protein insolubilization and thermal destabilization during storage as related to hard-to-cook defect in cowpeas
As storage duration at 30 o C/64% RH increased from 0 to 18 months, hard-to-cook (HTC) state of cowpeas (Vigna unguiculata) increased from 15.8 to 91.2 N/g, protein water extractability decreasedExpand

Effect of Milling and Particle Size on Functionality and Physicochemical Properties of Cowpea Flour
ABSTRACT Cowpeas (Vigna unguiculata) were milled through 0.5-, 1.0-, and 2.0- mm screens, and the flour was subsequently separated into different particle-size ranges. Such procedures caused onlyExpand

Influence of moist heat on solubility and emulsification properties of soy and peanut flours
Nitrogen solubility and emulsifying properties of unheated and heated (live steam at 100°C for 10, 20, and 30 min) soy and peanut flours were determined. Results showed that each of these functionalExpand
