What is it about?
Afzelia africana andBrachystegia eurycoma seeds are popularly used as food thickeners in Southeast Nigeria. This research is a report on their composition and functional properties, relevant to food systems.
Why is it important?
The functional properties determine the potential food uses of the flour from these legumes. Brachystegia eurycoma has better emulsification properties and foam properties than Afzelia africana. The bulk density and reconstitutability of the two legumes are similar
