Résumé
Sudanese are used to grow sorghum seeds without soils in the first step of making “Abrae”, usually before Ramadan month. This work aims to study the effect of germination on some biochemical characteristics of the sorghum seeds that was grown traditionally for processing Abrae. The sorghum seeds used in the experiment were brought from the local market of Wad Medani Town. 150 grams of sorghum seeds were taken and divided into three groups ; 50 grams for each. The first group was irrigated with tap water and germinated in the soil and this group was used as control, the second was germinated traditionally with tap water between two fibrous sheath (khaish), whereas the third group was germinated like the second one but irrigated with 10% rice solution (1g rice powder in 9 ml water). After Seven days, the seedlings of the three groups with their roots were used for the following tests : moisture, ash, fats, protein, fiber, and carbohydrates contents. These tests were conducted in the Food Analytical Laboratory, Faculty of Engineering and Technology, University of Gezira. The results of these tests revealed that, moisture, ash, protein, fibers, fats and carbohydrate contents were significantly different in traditionally grown sorghum seeds, compared to control and sorghum seeds that were irrigated with rice solution. This work recommended to run more chemical, biochemical and nutritional tests to clear and justify the observed differences.
