Reduction of cyanide content of cassava flour in Mozambique by the wetting method
Fifty cassava flour samples from Mogincual District of Nampula Province in Mozambique were found to contain, on average, 43 mg HCN equivalents/kg flour (ppm), of total cyanide, which is typical for a year of average rainfall. Five gram samples of the 30 flour samples of highest cyanide content were mixed with water and left for 5 h at 30 °C and it was found that the mean% retention of cyanide was 16.7%. Using 500 g instead of 5 g samples caused an increase in the % retention due to accumulation...[Show more]
