Economic assessment of production of flour from Prosopis alba and P. pallida pods for human food applications



Journal of Arid Environments 53(4): 517-528

This paper presents a detailed cost accounting of the processes involved in the production of flours from the mesocarps of the fruits of Prosopis alba and P. pallida to be used in human foods. The flours from both species are similar and contain 7-8% protein, 0.8-2% fat, 26-32% total dietary fiber and 48-59% sucrose. The data were based on actual production rates in use at the Universidad de Piura pilot plant using simple machinery.
