Abstract

The nutritional and mycoflora changes of groundnut (Arachis hypogea) were investigated during a storage period of twenty weeks. A total number of seven fungal species were identified namely, Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus fumigatus, Rhizopus sp., Penicillium sp., Mucor sp. and Fusarium sp. The results of proximate analysis in g/100g showed that ash decreased from 2.78 to 2.64, fat 50.38 – 47.69, fibre content 9.59 – 8.92 while the following parameters were found to increase viz moisture 5.09 – 6.13, crude protein 27.10 – 29.10 and carbohydrate 5.01 – 5.53. 6bd82d33480b6a6e138ad4f7cab4b389The results of mineral analysis in mg/100g revealed that all minerals decreased with storage period. sodium (Na) 18.75 – 16.33, potassium (K) 37.44 – 31.44, calcium (Ca) 74.68 – 68.97, magnesium (Mg) 58.47 – 52.45, zinc (Zn) 64.55 – 60.54, iron (Fe) 2.03 – 1.76, manganese (Mn) 1.26 to 0.96 and phosphorus (P) 379.85 to 370.28. copper (Cu) and lead (Pb) were not detected in the samples. In this study, groundnut inedibility and market value reduction were attributed to fungal colonization and contamination.

Abstract

The nutritive value and the mycoflora of sundried cocoyam chips were investigated during six months storage. Seven fungi namely Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus glaucus, Absidia corymbifera, Mucor spp., Rhizopus spp., Candida spp were isolated during the study. The fungal count was found to increase as the storage time increased. The result of the proximate analysis (in %) showed that crude protein increased from 9.32 in freshly prepared samples to 11.36 in sundried samples stored for twenty four weeks. Also, carbohydrate content increased from 68.32 in freshly prepared samples to 69.52 in stored samples.

cwmhwnoxcaaobj8Ash content increased from 3.55 to 4.20. Fat content decreased from 1.76 to 1.40 and the moisture content also decreased from 14.07 to 12.47 within the six months of storage. The result of mineral analysis (in mg/100g) showed that magnesium increased from 13.86 to 19.43, sodium increased from 15.53 to 16.55 but calcium was decreased from 23.50 to 23.21, zinc from 0.73 to 0.68 and phosphorus from 38.55 to 33.85. Copper, manganese and lead were not detected. This study has revealed the increase in the nutritional value and proximate analysis of sun dried cocoyam chips.
