Micromalting of triticale varieties NS Paun and Odisej
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this study was to evaluate the possibility of application of two triticale varieties, NS Paun and Odisej, as partial substitutes for barley malt in wort production, based on the triticale analyses, micromalting, and analyses of the produced triticale malts, with a highlight on the activity of amylases during the malting process. The analyses of two triticale varieties showed higher extract content and diastatic power in comparison to barley malt. In the varieties NS Paun and Odisej, the extract was by 11.4% and 6.3% higher than the standard values for barley malt, respectively. Diastatic power in varieties NS Paun and Odisej was by 100% and 111.9% higher than in barley malt, respectively. In both varieties, α- and β-amylases activities were also high. The α-amylase activity increased during the micromalting 34 and 20 times, respectively, in comparison to native triticale grain. The β-amylase activity also increased during micromalting, but to a lesser extent. The produ...ced triticale malts had good technological parameters and could be used as a partial substitute for barley malt in wort production.
