Bioactive Compounds

Found that sorghum is an excellent source of bioactive compounds that can be produced in large quantities because sorghum can be easily grown, stored, and processed to conventrate its unique components effectively. In addition, they discovered that tortillas containing tannin sorghum brans have good dark color and good acceptability with signigicantly high levels of anitoxidants and dietary fiber.
