The use of Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a starter culture in burukutu production was Fermentation is widely used traditionally for processing sorghum into. being more common. Burukutu production involves malting, mashing, souring and alcoholic fermentation. Microbiological and chemical changes which occur. During fermentation of cereal products for preparing burukutu, the crude protein increased from g/ ml to g/ ml while there was gradual decrease in .

Chemical changes and nutritive values of burukutu (a Nigerian beverage).

As the fermentation progress, an alcoholic flavour was observed from each of the samples. Following the equation of converting glucose to alcohol by yeast, each glucose molecule is converted into two molecules of ethyl alcohol and two molecules of carbon dioxide.

Chemistry, Microbiology Technology Lebensmittel 16 We also suggest that the use of a combination of pure cultures of Lactic acid bacteria and Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a starter culture in burukutu production using sorghum be investigated to see if it could bring out good aroma.

It is often called “sweet beer” by Zambians. After 12 h, there was a presence of bubbles which first started in the sample inoculated with Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The ingredients used are: However, the following parameters were tasted at 12 h interval.

They were spread out on a sac bag and kept for germination. Therefore the percent alcohol differs by 0. A Knetic study of Burukutu Fermentation. Systematic and Applied Fermengation. Journal of Engineering and Applied Science 2 7: Effect of fermentation on tannin content and in vitro protein fermwntation starch digestibilities of two sorghum cultivars. The titratable acidity was expressed as the volume of NaOH solution required to neutralize the free acid contain in the sample.


Member feedback about Fermmentation However, some of the endogenous sorghum microorganisms are pathogenic or may produce toxic substances, such as mycotoxins. Information on the different methods used in its production were also assessed and documented amongst the processes through a questionnaire survey and personal interviews.

The beer is traditionally prepared over a fire outside of the house.

Burukutu | Revolvy

Sorghum is one of the cereals cultivated in the tropical region of Africa and is about the largest cultivate crop in the northern Guinea savanna areas of Nigeria Kolawole, et al, These limitations are characteristics of third world countries particularly African countries.

Effect of Fermentation on the functional properties of Sorghum floor. But pasteurization of freshly brewed burukutu sample at 60 C for 30 min delayed its spoilage birukutu two weeks Alais and Linden.

Then multiply by 1. African beverages Revolvy Brain revolvybrain. A review, household level Food technology. Changes in Tannin and cyanide contents and diastic activity during germination and the effects of traditional processing on cyanide content of Sorghum cultivars.

The mixture was filtered through a sieve mash and rinsed with 30ml of water 45 C to extract the remaining enzymes from the grist.

Most nations set it at 18 years of age. Nutritional Improvement of Cereals by fermentation.


Food and Agricultural Organization F. Bottles and a glass of palm wine Palm wine is an alcoholic beverage created from the sap of various species of palm tree such as the palmyra, date palms, and coconut palms. However, various techniques have been investigat to improve the protein fetmentation and mineral availability of sorghum by reducing its tannin and phytate content.

It is a batch process carried out on a small scale. Results showed that there were no differences in the processing procedures amongst the Burukutu producers within the Greater Accra region.

This may signify the effect of higher utilization of fermentable sugars by Saccharomyces cerevisiae than other strains of microorganisms isolated from the natural fermentation process. The mixture was stirred and allowed to settle for 30min.

Microbial and Chemical Processes Associated with Burukutu, a Ghanaian Fermented Alcoholic Beverage

The titratable acidity was gradually increasing from 0. The ground malt releases a pleasant aroma and tasted sugary. To convert from percent alcohol by mass to percent alcohol by volume, the percent alcohol by mass will be divided by density of alcohol which 0.

Microbiological and Chemical analysis of fermented Sorghum dough for Kisra production. At the end of the malting period which was four 4 days plumules attended to about 1.
