ASSESSMENT OF THE EFFECT OF PRETREATMENTS AND DRYING METHODS ON THE NUTRITIONAL QUALITY OF OKARA, AND OKARA-MAIZE COMPOSITED TUO ZAAFI

Animal proteins are becoming largely expensive, hence the daily protein needs of low-income earners are unmet. This has triggered the need to explore rich but less expensive protein sources of plant origin such as okara, a soy residue to meet the protein needs of the consumer. One effective way of ensuring that consumers benefit from these less-expensive protein sources is their incorporation into frequently consumed diets. Therefore, this study sought to assess the effect of pretreatments (no pressing, 12 hours pressing and 24 hours pressing) and drying methods (sun drying, hot air drying and solar drying) on the nutritional quality of okara (soy residue) and maize-okara tuo zaafi. To accomplish the objective of the present study, the drying characteristics and proximate composition of the okara, the consumer acceptability and proximate composition of maize-okara tuo zaafi were determined using widely accepted scientific protocols. The study revealed that hot air drying (8.67±0.52 hours) presented the best drying condition of the okara samples, followed by the open sun (9.33±0.52 hours) and then the solar drying (14.33±1.51 hours) in that order. The drying methods had a significant (p
