Sugars of Pearl Millet [Pennisetum americanum (L.) Leeke] Grains uri icon

abstract

  • The sugars in the grains of nine pearl millet cultivars were fractionated through a Biogel column. Five different sugars?(stachyose, raffinose, sucrose, glucose, and fructose) were identified. Sucrose was predominant in all the cultivars. Raffinose content was high as compared to other cereals, and maltose was absent
