Traditional Enrichment of the Flour of Rice For Unearth Flours And Soya for the Confection of Weaning Four. (Published)

The aim of this work is to enrich the powder of rice with pistachio and soya in order to make a weaning food for children. In fact, some traditional methods have been used .The mixture of the powder of soya/rice(SORI ) in the one hand and pistachio/rice (PIRI) in the other hand , have been formulated and the biochemical characteristics  produced have been compared to  first Cerelac  rice of Nestle  and then to non enriched rice (NER).The enrichment of the rice obtained from the mixture of the powder of pistachio  and soya increases the quantity of proteins up to 78%  both in SORI  and PIRI.The result of these analysis shows that Cerelac rice, Soya/rice and pistachio rice contains respectively, 14.94 ± 0.07 g/100 g MS, 14.62 ± 0.5 g/100 g MS et 14.92 ± 0.8 g/100 g MS of proteins with energetically values of 434.40 ± 3.02 ; 441.72 ± 2.1 and  412.97 ± 2.8/100 g MS kcals.The powder of rice  non enriched has less protein values (8.11± 1.12 g/100 g MS ) and energetic one (336.19 ± 1.5 kcal ).The powder RNE contains less mineral and zinc values  (0.4±0.01) and iron values (1,23 ± 0,02)while the highest values founded in the witness are in zinc (3,91 ± 0,02)and in iron (3.74 ± 0.03).The powder RNE, SORI, PIRI and the witness got respectively 5.57 ± 0.6 ; 6.08 ± 0,05 ; 6.24 ± 0.18 et 6.12 ± 0.14 of  pH.  The pH of powder obtained are statistically the same in the tested sample (p ≥ 0.05 and different from RNE (p ≤ 0.05).These results show that the nutrition density of formulated diets are superior to the powder of  non enriched rice and comparable to the tested sample (Cerelac rice).These rice enriched with the powder of soya and pistachio could be used as complementary food for children
