Germination as a processing technique for soybeans in small-scale farming

  • 2013
  • Issue: 2
  • Volume: 43
N.C. Kayembe & C. Jansen van Rensburg Page: 167 - 173

Heat processing is an effective way of reducing antinutritional factors (ANFs) in legumes, but requires expensive facilities and equipment. Accurate control of temperature is critical to avoid under- or overheating. Therefore, heat treatment of soybeans is not a viable option…
