Optimization of Sulfur Dioxide and Lactic Acid Steeping Concentrations for Wet-Milling of Grain Sorghum

Abstract

Influence of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and lactic acid (LA) on grain sorghum steeping efficiency in terms of wetmilling characteristics was investigated using response surface analysis. Tested ranges of concentrations in steeping water were 0.050 to 0.278% and 0 to 0.282% for SO2 and LA, respectively. Measured wet-milling variables were steeping solids yield… (More)
