Scientists of the South Ural State University have created and patented a method of processing grain that will balance the amino acid composition, increase the amount of synthesized vitamins and minerals in its structure, and also ensure a high yield of wheat. The proposed approach to changing the properties of plant materials is effective and safe.

"Today in the grain industry, there are two problems: low quality of grain and shelf life. Our goal is to find new ways to process low-quality grain crops and get healthy food—innovative products with added nutritional benefits. In our research, we use the influence of ultrasound to intensify the process of germination of crops. The research is aimed primarily at germinating soft wheat grains, which can be used in the baking industry, as well as a food additive or as a separate food ingredient," says Natalia Naumenko, candidate of Technical Sciences, associate professor of food and biotechnology at the Higher Medical and Biological School of SUSU.

Treatment - Shell - Grain - Crop - Penetration

Ultrasonic treatment affects the shell of a grain crop, which contributes to a more rapid penetration of moisture into its growth points (endosperm and germ). As a result, intensification of the germination process occurs. So...
