Wheat: characteristics and quality requirements.
Abstract: Wheat is unique as a source of the gluten proteins that alone have the dough-forming properties needed to make the variety of foods that rely on the rheology of dough, namely, leavenedExpand
Chemical Modification and Cowpea Fortification of Maize
The high utilization and consumption levels of maize in developing countries call for the investigation of new methods of processing to introduce variety as well as improve the functionality andExpand
Nutrition and Fortification of Corn and Wheat Tortillas
SUMMARY The nixtamalization process significantly affects the nutritional profile of tortillas and related foods. Tortillas are considered an excellent source of energy due to their high starchExpand
Niacin contents of cereal-milling products in food-composition databases need to be updated
Abstract The niacin content of cereal raw materials reported in food-composition databases often differs considerably. One major reason for this discrepancy is the analytical method used for itsExpand

The plant based foods such as cereals and legumes, with a ratio of 87% nicotinic acid presence, standout as the best source ofNicotinic Acid deficiency in human and encouraging regular intake of those cereal and legume samples containing rich nicotini acid would remove nicotinIC acid deficiency inhuman.

Change in B and E vitamin and lutein, β-sitosterol contents in industrial milling fractions and during toasted bread production
Wheat constitutes a major part of the daily diet in Europe and represents an important source of vitamins. Thus, it is important to monitor the levels of vitamins upon the wheat-based foodsExpand
Bioavailability of niacin from feed ingredients commonly used in feeds for channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus
It was concluded that supplementation of niacin may not be needed or can be lowered in typical commercial catfish feeds because of the relatively high amount of available niacIn found in the feed ingredients. Expand

Use of nixtamalization to transform corn into tortillas is increasing significantly in Mexico Central America and the US. Advantages of this method include reduced pollution product flexibility andExpand


Transformation of niacin-containing compounds in corn during grain development: relationship to niacin nutritional availability
La niacine du caryopse a maturite n'est pas assimilable par le rat, alors que des derives de niacine du grain non mur le sont. Les recherches entreprises pour expliquer ces differences mettent enExpand
Bound niacin in sorghum and its availability
Abstract Two varieties of Sorghum vulgare , milo and jowar, have been studied. Samples cooked at neutral pH gave total niacin values of 46 and 29 mg/kg, respectively, on an air-dry basis. In extractsExpand

Treatment of Human Pellagra with Nicotinic Acid
Summary Improvement in 4 patients with pellagra following administration of nicotinic acid was as satisfactory as that following administration of liver filtrate except for an increase in timeExpand
The effect of alkaline hydrolysis of maize on the availability of its nicotinic acid to the pig.
Microbiological and chemical evidence indicates that almost all the nicotinic acid in cereals, such as maize, wheat, barley, rye and rice, is present in this alkali-labile, ‘bound’ form, that differs from the known nicotinoyl derivatives. Expand
The distribution of nicotinic acid in wheat and maize
Dissected embryos of wheat have grown to flowering successfully, though weakly, without any external supply of nicotinic acid, though 99% of the nicotinIC acid of the grain is thereby dispensed with. Expand
The available niacin values of foods for rats and their relation to analytical values.
A bioassay for niacin was developed using weight gain or "gain/food eaten" of young rats as the response measure, and alkali-cooked tortilas, steamed sweet corn, beans and liver, with their niac in all in free form, gave assay values close to their total niacIn content. Expand
The chemical nature of the bound nicotinic acid of wheat bran: studies of nicotinic acid-containing macromolecules.
Methods were developed which gave high yields of ' non-diffusible nicotinic acid' preparations and the significance of these results in explaining the nutritional unavailability of bound nicotinics acid is discussed. Expand
Complementary use of the reversed-phase and anion-exchange modes of high-pressure liquid chromatography for studies of reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide.
The reversed-phase and anion-exchange modes of high-pressure liquid chromatography were used to separate breakdown products and impurities in solutions of the reduced form of nicotinamide adenineExpand
