Author(s): Rajni Kharsan, D Khokhar and Mahima Panjwani
The physical properties of Kodo bran and defatted Kodo bran, i.e., bulk density, true density, porosity, and angle of repose, were found to be 436.9 and 518.3 kg/m3, 1006.4 and 1008.3 kg/m3, and 56.6 and 48.6%, respectively. The coefficient of friction of Kodo bran and defatted Kodo bran was observed on three surfaces: aluminium sheet, G.I. and an MS plate value varying from 0.932 to 1.305. The highest value of the coefficient was observed in the G.I. plate. The chemical properties of bran show significant increases in all parameters after the extraction of oil. The Kodo bran was found to have a high content of fat, protein and carbohydrates. The total phenolic content, total flavonoid content, total tannin content and total saponin content in Kodo bran and defatted Kodo bran were found to be 510 mg GAE/100 g and 618 mg GAE/100 g, 347 mg QE/100 g and 355 mg QE/100 g, 68 mg TAE/100 g and 79 mg TAE/100 g and 92 mg SE/100 g and 43 mg SE/100 g, respectively.
