Abstract: Canning quality of twenty nine new drought-tolerant bean lines from two grain types; large-seeded and small-seeded, was investigated. Bean seeds were soaked, blanched, canned in brine and stored for three weeks prior to evaluation. Mex-142, the popular canning variety, was used as a control. The traits studied were Hydration Coefficient (HC), Washed Drained Weight (WDWT), Percentage Washed Drained Weight (PWDWT), firmness, splits, clumping, size, shape and uniformity.
CHANGES IN SOME BIOCHEMICAL QUALITIES DURING DRYING OF PULP PRE-CONDITIONED AND FERMENTED COCOA (THEOBROMA CACAO) BEANS
Fermentation and drying are critical to the development of flavour precursors that generate into distinctive chocolate flavour notes during industrial manufacture. These processes also lead to reduction in acidity and free fatty acids of nibs, which dictates the levels of bitterness and colour development in chocolates. This study investigated changes in nib acidity, flavour precursors (sugars concentration and proteins) and free fatty acids during drying of pulp pre-conditioned and fermented cocoa beans.
Jams, jellies, preserves, conserves, marmalades, and butters are all gelled or thickened fruit products. Most are cooked and preserved with sugar. Their individual characteristics depend on the kind of fruit used and the way it is prepared, the ingredients and their proportions in the mixture, and the method of preparation.
