Abstract

The effects of the methods (drying and grinding in the liquidiser) on the crude protein solubility of Mimosa pigra and water spinach.

Abstract

The experiment aimed at investigating effects of the methods of drying and grinding on the crude protein solubility of foliage of Mimosa pigra and Water spinach, was carried out at Central Laboratory of An Giang University from March to May 2022. The objectives were to determine the effects on the protein solubility in leaves of Mimosa pigra and foliage of water spinach of sun drying, oven-drying at 65°C or 100°C; and of e grinding the fresh foliage in a liquidizer. Protein solubility was very much higher in leaves of water spinach than on leaves of mimosa. Solubility N is grinding the fresh foliage, followed by the sun dry and drying at 65°C and lowest values for the drying at 100°C treatment.
