 en Comparison of different methods of producing bambara( Voandzeia subterranean L. Thou check for this species in other resources ) flours for preparation of 'moin-moin'
Olapade, A. & Adetuyi, D.O.


Bambara nut was subjected to different treatments prior to mechanical dry dehulling and milling into flours. Physicochemical properties of the flours and sensory attributes of moin-moin prepared from the flours were compared with that of moin-moin from fresh pastes from cowpea and Bambara. The functional properties investigated included foam-ability, foam-stability, gelation capacity, dispersibility and dehull-ability while proximate chemical composition of the flours was also investigated. Both cold and hot water steeping of Bambara prior to dehulling produced moin-moin that compared favourably with moin-moin from fresh pastes (controls). Fresh paste of Bambara produced through manual dehulling resulted in moin-moin that compared similarly to conventional moin-moin from fresh cowpea. The proximate chemical compositions were not significantly affected by the treatments but functional properties were significantly affected.
