Enzymatic production of glucose syrup from Sudanese sorghum and millet


Omima E Fadlallah Mohammed, Abdel Monieim I Mustafa, Babiker E Mohamed, Isam A Mohamed Ahmed

Glucose syrup produce from two sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) cultivars and two millet (Pennisetum glaucum) cultivars starches were investigated. The starch extracted by two deferent methods, laboratory wet milling (control) and enzymatic wet milling (BE) then hydrolyzed by alpha amylase, glucoamylase and pullulanase enzymes. TSS, reducing sugar, moisture and solid matter of glucose syrup were varied between 39- 41, 81.73%-93.47%, 50.9%-59.79% and 40.21%-49.10% respectively, for the laboratory wet milling and enzymatic wet milling of sorghum and millet cultivars. Dextrose equivalent results of glucose syrup revealed 99.63%, 86.88%, 95.80% and 96.33% for laboratory wet milling (control) and 92.86%, 89.24%, 92.92% and 88.58% for enzymatic wet milling for Tabat, Wed baco, Ashana and Demby, respectively. The color of glucose syrup varied between the medium yellow for Tabat pepsin treated sample and light straw color for Tabat, Wad baco and Demby control samples.
