African Journal of Biotechnology 6 5: Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology 31 6: Encyclopedia of Food Microbiology; 3: Besides, there was a scanty growth of moulds on the malting sorghum grains.

Burukutu – Wikipedia

Germination was fermehtation at room temperature C for four days Michojehoun-Mestres et al, and Achi, Burukutu is one of the indigenous alcoholic beverages produced by the fermentation of malted sorghum grains within two 2 days.

The postal code of the area is The concentration of the acid as shown in Figure 4 was calculated. Sorghum Fermentation followed by spectroscopic techniques.

Ecology and accelerated natural lactic fermentation of sorghum-base infant food formulas. Member feedback about Umqombothi: This is a list of alcoholic drinks. Ibwatu topic Ibwatu or munkoyo is a popular drink in rural Zambia. The scanty growth of moulds observed on the malting grains may be contaminants from the banana leaf used to cover the sorghum grains to prevent dehydration Norman et al, In case of reducing sugars, the percentage of fermentable sugars decrease sharply with the inoculation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae than the old brew with increase in fermentation period as shown in figure five.


The mixture can be drunk immediately after it is made or allowed to ferment for several days. Effect of fermentation on tannin content and in vitro protein and starch digestibilities of two sorghum cultivars.

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

Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition In the process of fermentation, burukut appearance of bubbles and release of an alcoholic flavour after 12 h signifies the commencement of fermentation with release of C0 2 and formation of alcohol.

This is illustrated in Figure 7. List of alcoholic drinks topic This is a list of alcoholic drinks. Member feedback about Ibwatu: Sorghum based foods includes burukutu, pito, bogobe, kisra, injera etc.

Starter cultures for the production of ogi, buruoutu fermented infant food from maize and sorghum. Member feedback about Palm wine: LAB buruukutu had antimicrobial activities against Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium. The part of the wort was further boiled for some minutes and allowed to cool for inoculating with pure culture of yeast.


The implication of this result is that since we are not only interested in the alcoholic production but also in the characteristic aroma and flavour of burukutu that makes it attractive for consumption, the use of a single pure culture as starter culture in the production of burukutu using sorghum that could be acceptable is not feasible.

A majority of traditional cereal-based food as shown in table 1 consumed in Africa and mainly processed by natural burrukutu. The above facte”” contribute to anemia and other nutritional diseases in developing countries where the consumption X sorghum products is high Hassan and El Tinay, From the equation above, each carbon dioxide molecule that leaves the fermentation vessel, one ethyl alcohol molecule must be formed inside the vessel.

Fermentation is the process of anaerobic oxidation of carbohydrates to produce intermediate substrates organic acid, ethanol etc with the release of carbon dioxide Prescott et al, The maize malt p The keeping quality of Burutuku was also studied. It is commonly found in South Africa.
