Sorghum grain | Feedipedia. Sorghum and Millets: Chemistry, Technology and Nutritional Attributes, Second Edition, is a new, fully revised edition of this widely read book published by AACC International. With an internationally recognized editorial team, this new edition covers, in detail, the history, breeding, production, grain chemistry, nutritional quality and handling of sorghum.

NUTRIENT BALANCE INDICATOR™ This symbol offers a visual representation of a food's nutritional strengths and weaknesses, with each spoke representing a different nutrient.

The spoke for dietary fiber is colored green, protein is blue, vitamins are purple, minerals are white, and yellow represents a group of commonly overconsumed nutrients: saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. nutrition. Starch is one of the major carbohydrates in the sorghum grain.

Sorghum protein is superior to wheat protein in biological value and digestibility. Sorghum is poor in lysine but rich in leucine. Malting, fermentation and by mixing of flour from other grains or pulses improves the nutritional quality of sorghum.

In these areas, sorghum is a dual purpose crop, where it is used for human consumption and as feed for animals.

However, although widely used and consumed, this crop is known to have low nutritional quality Cited by: 6. It has been recognized that to improve the nutritional quality of sorghum and pearl millet, it would be desirable - if resources were available - to analyse the germplasm accessions of these two crops for.

Since these and other factors suggest that a major improvement in the nutritional quality of sorghum and millets is imminent, the publication of this book at the present time is particularly apt.

The text and Cited by:   A promising area is the use of minor or pseudo-cereals such as amaranth, buckwheat, quinoa, sorghum and teff. The paper is focused on the new definition of gluten-free products in food label, the nutritional properties of the gluten-free cereals and their use to prevent nutritional Cited by: Sorghum is a gluten-free cereal and forms the staple diet of a majority of the populations living in the semi-arid tropics.

Sorghum contains various phenolic and antioxidant compounds that could. Sorghum is a major staple crop and food in arid, tropical countries in Africa and in India. • Sorghum has some valuable nutritional characteristics.

It is gluten-free and can contain high levels of phytochemicals, particularly antioxidant-rich phenolics. • Sorghum Cited by:   There are four main classes of sorghum that have been bred for particular qualities: grain sorghum for grain quality and size; sweet sorghums for stem sugar content and forage quality; broom corns for length of panicle branches and suitability of the panicle for use as brooms and brushes; and grassy sorghums.

Breeding Sorghum for Diverse End Uses is a comprehensive overview of all significant global efforts for the genetic improvement of sorghum, a major crop of many semi-arid nations that is suitable for a huge range of uses, from human food, to biofuels. Split into two main sections, the book initially reviews the genetic suitability of sorghum.

Sorghum syrup is also known as sorgho, sorghum molasses and sorgo which are made by boiling sweet juice of Sorghum cane scientifically known as Sorghum bicolor.

Syrup of good quality could be produced from Sorghum genotypes having high percentage of lowering sugars and low percentage of sucrose Color: Dark.

ences exist in agronomic and nutritional quality traits among species, hybrids and varieties. The sorghum types available for silage production include: forage sorghum hybrids, grain sorghums, the older forage sor-ghum varieties, sudangrass hybrids, and sorghum.

Grain sorghum is low in protein content Lysine, threonine and tryptophan are the limiting amino acids in the proteins of grain Sorghum.

Protein fractionation studies have shown that prolamine and glutelin are the principal protein fractions. Increase in protein content of grain Sorghum leads to an increase in prolamin fraction and decreases the nutritional by: The nutritional quality of whole and decorticated sorghum grains (Tetron, Dabar, Feterita) from Sudan, and various dishes prepared from sorghum, was determined in rat balance tests.

Nutritional Value of Sorghum. Sorghum is loaded with nutrients, vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, and thiamin, high amount of magnesium, copper, iron, phosphorous, calcium, and potassium. It provides dietary fiber by 48% of the recommended daily value.

British Cited by: Further it was concluded that good quality of fortified multigrain bhakari premix can be prepared by using 23% sorghum, % finger millet, % amaranth, % oats flour and 7% defatted soy.

Low food value. In its overall nutrient composition—about 12 percent protein, 3 percent fat, and 70 percent carbohydrate—sorghum grain hardly differs from maize or wheat. However, sorghum has two problems as far as food quality is concerned. One is tannins, which occur in the seed coats of brown sorghum .Cereal Crops: Rice, Maize, Millet, Sorghum, Wheat Cereal Crops Prepared by: Maize is a major staple food crop grown in diverse agro-ecological zones and farming systems, Sorghum is the File Size: 1MB.
