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 .

Most nations set it at 18 years of age. The potential for upgrading traditional fermented foods through Biotechnology. The beer is traditionally prepared over a fire outside of the house. Burukuti feedback about Palm wine: From the molecular weight, each Member feedback about List of alcoholic drinks: The concentration of the acid as shown in Figure 4 was calculated.

Burukutu | Revolvy

Nutritive value of malted sorghum and fermented malted sorghum. Bhrukutu multiply by 1. A scheme for the improvement of fermented foods of Africa, south of the Sahara in global impacts of applied microbiology. A similar observation was made by Egemba and Etuk, The titratable acidity was expressed as the volume of NaOH solution required to neutralize the free acid contain in the sample.

A similar result was gotten by Kolawole et al, but difference in final percentage of alcohol in the natural method carried out in the laboratory may be as fermemtation result of differences in quantity of sorghum flour used and the variety. During malting of sorghum grains, starch is hydrolyzed into fermentable sugars mainly by amylolytic organisms capable of hydrolysing starchy constituents Michodjehoun-Mestres et al, and Achi, Their low pH confers the advantage of microbiological safety Tomkins et al.


Food Chemistry 53 2: 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.

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

However, the following parameters were tasted at 12 h interval. At the end of the malting period which was four 4 days plumules attended to about 1.

Systematic and Applied Microbiology. See also Burukutu Chibuku Munkoyo Lotoko This was in line with Kolawole et al, This may suggest that the use of only Saccharomyces cerevisiae in sorghum fermentation to produce burukutu will encourages greater capability of producing acid than those of combined effort of those strains of organisms involved in natural fermentation. Burukutu is a popular indigenous alcoholic beverage of a vinegar-like flavour, consumed in the Northern Guinea savanna region of Nigeria,Republic of Benin and in Ghana Kolawole et al, and Norman et al, Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition Member feedback about Zangon Kataf: Applied and Environmental Microbiology.

Alcoholic drinks are divided into three general classes: Burutuku keeps best for up to twelve weeks if glass bottled, pasteurized and stored in a climatic chamber. Isabel et al, To identify and enumerate the different microorganisms involved in the fermentation of Burukutu, a traditional fermented sorghum beverage and the chemical changes associated with the fermentation.


After 12 h, there was a presence of bubbles which first started in the sample inoculated with Saccharomyces cerevisiae. 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. Results showed that there were no differences in the processing procedures amongst the Burukutu producers within the Greater Accra region. Journal of Engineering and Applied Science 2 7: These include malting, fermentation and cooking Abd Elmoneom et al.

Our limitations included lack of funds to burukuyu our research and the unavailability of digital modern equipment for analysis which left us with the option of improvision sometimes.

Biodiversity of Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated from a surver of pito production sites in various parts of Ghana. The flour was stored in a polyethylene bag at an ambient temperature prior to analysis according to Kolawole et al, O, and Akinduyo, B.

They are legally consumed in most countries, and over one hundred countries have laws regulating their production, sale, and consumption. It is a mildly fermented drink made from pounded roots mixed with bits of maize.
