    Abstract: Pulsed electric field is a developing non-thermal food processing method that uses high voltage pulses within short time to treat food products. It ruptures the cell membranes of vegetative microorganism by expanding or creating pores results in microbial inactivation and used in tissue softening of food plants. Electric field strength, treatment t... Show More

    Abstract: This study investigated the use of composite flour from wheat-anchote-grass pea flour for bread products. Composite flours were prepared from the blends of wheat-anchote and grass pea in different proportions (A) 100% control, 90:5:5% (B), 80:10:10% (C), 70:15:15% (D), 60:20:20% (E), and50:25:25% (F). The proximate composition of blended flours was... Show More
