ISOLATETION AND PURIFICATION OF CHARACTERIZE MICRO-ORGANISMS FROM STORED PAP

ISOLATETION AND PURIFICATION OF CHARACTERIZE MICRO-ORGANISMS FROM STORED PAP

 

1.2STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

Microorganisms are involved in the processing of pap especially during fermentation and equally during storage.  Few organisms are found in the pap, if it is properly stored.  Their presence in pap during storage leads to irregular of flavour and loss of nutrients (van veen and steinkrans 1990).  This is the result of their metabolic activity in the stored pap.

The tradiitonal method of pap production using various grains encourage significant nutrient losses, Losses m,ay occur during steeping, milling and sieving. Large parts of the protein in the grain is located in the testa and germ that are shifted off during processing.

Losses of fibre, protein, ash as well as some vitamins have been reported by Banigo and Muller (1972). Losses in nutrients could be minimized by using an improved wet milling method devised by Banigo and Muller (1972).  At the end of this work, the microorganisms found in stored pap was isolated and characterized.

 

1.3AIM AND OBJECTIVES OF THE STDUY

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES ARE

i.To isolate and characterize bacterial contaminants from stored pap

ii.To isolate and characterize fungal contaminants from stored pap
