Comparative studies were carried out on the ability of pure strain of Rhizopus oryzae and Saccharomyces cerevisae to alter the nutritional quality of cassava flour produced from low-and medium-cyanide variety of cassava tuber. Low- and medium-cyanide variety of cassava tubers were collected from International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Ibadan, Nigeria. These tubers were washed, peeled, grated and aseptically inoculated with pure strains of Rhizopus oryzae and Saccharomyce… Expand
Effects of Microbial Starter Composition on Nutritional Contents and Pasting Properties of Fermented Cassava Flour
Fermentation of cassava chips prior to drying and milling processes improves cassava flour quality: i.e. lower cyanogenic content, remove specific odour and colour. Composition of microbial starterExpand
Microbiological and physico-chemical characteristics of fufu analogue from breadfruit (Altocarpus altilis F)
Summary Breadfruit was processed into a novel form analogous to retted cassava or fufu. The fruits and cassava tubers were each peeled, comminuted and fermented for 5 days. The slurries obtainedExpand
Effect of starter cultures on the anti-nutrient contents, minerals and viscosity of ogwo, a fermented sorghum-Irish potato gruel.
This work investigated the effect of single starter cultures on the anti-nutrient, mineral contents and viscosity of fermenting ‘ogwo’, a fermented gruel from sorghum-Irish potato mixture. TheExpand
Efficient production of L-lactic acid from cassava powder by Lactobacillus rhamnosus.
The high L-lactic acid concentration reported was obtained using 275 g/l of cassava powder concentration (total sugar of 222.5 g/L) in SSF batch fermentation, and it provides an efficient L- lactic acid production process with cheap raw bioresources, such as cassava Powder. Expand
Protein Enrichment of Cassava-Based Dried Distiller’s Grain by Solid State Fermentation Using Trichoderma Harzianum and Yarrowia Lipolytica for Feed Ingredients
Cassava-based dried distiller’s grain (Cassava-based DDG) is known as a by-product of the bio-ethanol industry with low nutritional value due to the presence of cyanide and to the low content ofExpand
The Effect of Processing on the Nutritional and Anti-Nutritional Factors in the Raw, Roasted and Fermented Jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus) Seeds
Background of study: Processing methods have been known to influence the nutrients and anti-nutrients present in food substances. Jack fruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam.) of the family Maraceae;Expand
Microorganism Associated with Cassava Fermentation for Abacha Product Sold in Owerri, Imo State
There is therefore urgent need for public enlightenment on public health implications, need for proper hygiene as well as strategies for preventing and controlling the microorganism which do not play a role in the fermentation of cassava for Abacha production. Expand
Nutrient and antinutrient retention in indigenous white cassava gari and provitamin A biofortified yellow cassava gari fermented over different time periods
As the fermentation time increases, pVABYC gari is found to have a better nutritional retention capacity than IWC, and retains more nutrient in addition to providing 100% more β-carotene than I WC. Expand
Nutritive Value and Antioxidant Properties of Cereal Gruels Produced from Fermented Maize and Sorghum
Cereal gruels prepared from fermented maize (yellow and white) and sorghum seeds are the forms in which cereal are popularly consumed in tropical Africa, mostly as weaning food for children. TheExpand
Optimization of process conditions for tannin content reduction in cassava leaves during solid state fermentation using Saccharomyces cerevisiae
The Box-Behnken design of the Response Surface Methodology was applied to optimize various process parameters, such as carbon concentration, nitrogen concentration, moisture content, and incubation time for maximum reduction of tannin content in cassava leaves, resulting in a perfect fit of the experimental data.

Dynamics of phytate-zinc balance of fungi fermented cassava products (gari and flour)
Fungi fermented cassava products (gari and flour) were produced by fermenting cassava pulp with pure strains of some common saprophytes namely, Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, Rhizopus oryzaeExpand
Isolation and characterization of amylase from fermented cassava ( Manihot esculenta Crantz) wastewater
It could be concluded that these amylases from the fermented cassava waste water are active at wide temperature and pH ranges and could be explored in the industrial sector as a source of industrial amylase that require a wide range of conditions (temperature and pH). Expand
Biochemical changes in cassava products (flour & gari) subjected to Saccharomyces cerevisae solid media fermentation
In an attempt to enhance the nutritional quality of cassava products (flour and gari), Saccharomyces cerevisae was used in the fermentation (solid media) of cassava pulp. The mash obtained wasExpand
The effect of processing on total organic acids content and mineral availability of simulated cassava-vegetable diets
Fermentation of cassava and blanching of vegetables play an important role in making minerals more available and these processing methods should be encouraged to potentially ameliorate the disease states associated with mineral deficiency. Expand
Nutrient and antinutrient composition of condiments produced from some fermented underutilized legumes
Condiments produced from some underutilized legumes in Nigeria were evaluated for their nutritional and sensory qualities. Soybeans (Glycine max), locust beans (Parkia filicoidea L.), pigeon peaExpand
Improved enzymic assay for cyanogens in fresh and processed cassava
The assay for cassava cyanogens developed at the Natural Resources Institute has been modified to overcome some of the problems encountered when the assay is applied to cassava products. Inclusion ofExpand
Saponins, phytic acid, tannins and protease inhibitors in quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa, Willd) seeds
Saponin-A remaining in the seeds decreased to 0·31% of the dry weight, and saponin-B was completely removed by this process, and neither protease inhibitor nor tannins were detected in the quinoa seeds. Expand
Effect of Some Post-Harvest Treatments on the Nutritional Properties of Cnidoscolus acontifolus Leaf
