Physico-chemical properties of pseudo-cereals (Amaranth and buckwheat)

Author(s):
Sangeeta and RB Grewal
Abstract:
Physico-chemical properties of pseudo-cereals (amaranth and buckwheat) were studied. The pseudo-cereals were analyzed for 1000 kernel weight, bulk density, hydration capacity, hydration index, swelling capacity and swelling index. Flour samples from amaranth and buckwheat were analyzed for moisture, crude fat, crude protein, crude fibre, ash, and total carbohydrates. It was revealed that seed size of amaranth was much smaller than buckwheat. Protein and fat content of amaranth was higher than buckwheat whereas, buckwheat was found to be rich in crude fibre content.
