EFFECT OF ALKALINE STEEP AND AIR-REST CYCLE ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF SORGHUM PEROXIDASE ACTIVITY DURING MALTING

Abstract The effect of alkaline steep and air-rest cycle on the development of peroxidase activity during malting was investigated in sorghum variety, KSV8. Preliminary experiment showed that alkaline steep (test) and the distilled water steep (control) had germinative energy of 92± 2.87 % and 89± 0.57 % respectively. In regime II (sorghum grains steeped in […]
