Hibiscus Sabdariffa - Uses, Nutritional And Therapeutic Benefits - A Review
Hibiscus sabdariffa is a shrub that belongs to the family Malvacea. Over 200 different species of Hibiscus exist worldwide. Hisbiscus sabdariffa has been noted to have a high nutritional potential, particularly in the leaves, calyces, and seeds. The Roselle calyx, which is used to make a variety of beverages, has been said to contain a significant amount of... Continue here

Pectinase Production By Fungal-based Solid-state Fermentation Of Selected Agricultural Wastes
Agricultural waste is the residues from growing and processing raw agricultural products. They can be properly managed using fungi to produce economical materials such as pectinase enzymes that act as biological agents which are applicable in many areas. This research was aimed at producing pectinase by fungal-based solid-state fermentation of agricultural wastes.... Continue here

L-glutamic Acid Production By Immobilized Wild And Mutant Bacillus Species
The effect of Ultra-Violet (UV) irradiation and acridine orange dye on L-glutamic acid producing Bacillus subtilis and B. megaterium was investigated. The selected mutant strains and wild types of B. subtilis and B. megaterium were immobilized and used for L-glutamic acid production. The Bacillus strains were exposed to UV irradiation and treated with acridine... Continue here

Production Of Itaconic Acid From Sweet Potato (ipomoea Batata) Peel Using Naturally Occurring Fungi In Solid State Fermentation
This study evaluates the potentials of sweet potato peel as a substrate for itaconic acid production in solid state fermentation using naturally occurring fungi. Sweet potato peel was analyzed for proximate composition using standard methods. Fungi were obtained from the peel by solid state fermentation and identified using microscopic and molecular methods.... Continue here

Mosquito Adulticidal Activities Of Crude Extracts From Above Ground Part Of Laggera Pterodonta (d.c) Sch.bip And Laggera Aurita (d.c) Sch.bip Against Malaria Vector, Anopheles Gambiae
Mosquitoes are small, midget flies that transmit harmful infections such as malaria, yellow fever, and dengue fever in Nigeria. Its control using a synthetic insecticide is becoming increasingly difficult due to high cost, persistence in the environment, and development of resistance by the mosquitoes.  The aim of this study is to evaluate the adulticidal...

Biochemical Properties Of α-amylase Isolated From Aspergillus Tamarii From Cassava Starch Using Solid State Fermentation
Cassava starch can be completely hydrolyzed to produce a sweetener that can be used as a substitute for refined sugars and artificial sweeteners in the food and pharmaceutical industries. This work was designed to isolate and identify a good amylase producing fungus from cassava flour and to extract, purify, and partially characterize α-amylase produced. The... Continue here
