Abstract

A review of literature on endosperm texture determination and its relationship with milling performance is presented. Methods for measuring sorghum endosperm texture as abrasive, pearling and wet milling are reported. This review describes some indirect methods: time to grind by the Brabender microhardness tester (BHMT), resistance to grinding by the Stenvert hardness tester (SHT), two methods for determination of average particle size: particle size index (PSI) and near-infrared (NIR) reflectance and others based on density differences between the floury and vitreous part of the endosperm.
