While food scientists are keen to promote the gluten-free benefits
of sorghum in food formulations, African scientists are set to
design a genetically engineered 'super sorghum' packed with
vitamins and minerals
Understanding the genetic make-up of rice will help scientists to
map the genomes of corn and sorghum crops, say US researchers, at a
time when scientists are keen to promote the gluten-free benefits
of sorghum in food formulations.
As rising cereal prices continue to squeeze profit margins for food
industry participants, food technologists in the US are working on
teasing out new functionalities from the cheap, easy to grow, and
resilient crop sorghum, reports...
