Sweet Sorghum: Special type of sorghum known as sweet sorghum, capable of accumulating sugar in stem juice as sugarcane, can be grown and processed to produce jaggery, syrup sugar etc., including fuel alcohol. Once harvested, the stalks are ran through a roller mill, resulting in the extracted juice as well as a co-product known as bagasse. The sweet sorghum is investigated as an alternative source in place of sugar cane for ethanol production. What is Sorghum Flour? After crushing, the syrup is cooked down to concentrate the natural sugars and packaged for sale. Sorghum Uses International Markets show more close . Sweet sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is a sugar producing multipurpose crop which is used for simultaneous production of grain (from earhead), sugary juice (from stem) and fodder (leaves and bagasse) for livestock.

Sorghum flour is also the key ingredient in the Indian flatbread, jowar roti. Sweet sorghum is used to make syrup, whiskey and rum. One species, Sorghum bicolor, was originally domesticated in Africa and has since spread throughout the globe. for human nutrimental or biodiesel purposes. The organic acids in the ensilage can promote the secretion of digestive gland, hence increase the domestic animal's digestibility for the feed. Use sorghum syrup in beverages such as Twisted Sorghum Cider. from sweet sorghum juice in batch and fed-batch fermentations by Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Sweet Sorghum vs Sugarcane. World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology The algal cells or extracted lipids may serve either as fish meal or 23, 1497–1501. Sorghum syrup is a 100 percent natural sweetener sometimes called “sorghum molasses,” as its flavor and uses are similar to those of molasses made from sugar cane. Sweet sorghum uses water and nitrogen more efficiently than corn (Geng, 1989, Smith and Buxton, 1993, Gnansounou et al., 2005, Bonin et al., 2016) and it requires less than 50% total nitrogen to produce similar ethanol yields as corn (Anderson et al., 1995, Damasceno et al., 2014).
