Sustainable Food Production

ISSN: 2624-876X


SFP Volume 10

Online since: October 2021

Description: This "Sustainable Food Production" volume reports about the last research on the nutritional value of the Nigerian dish Moi-Moi. Increasing substitution of cowpea with white maize resulted in enhancing the nutritional value in Moi-Moi samples. With these improvements, Moi-Moi samples along with other nutritious foods will prevent hidden hunger, weaning deficiencies in infants, protein-energy malnutrition.


SFP Volume 9

Online since: November 2020


This volume of the journal "Sustainable Food Production" contains papers that present the research results on the effect of cassava root processing on the environment; the impact of starter culture on the fatty acid and amino acid profile of fermented Parkia Biglobosa seeds and also the influence of some organic manure on growth and yield of bean grown in newly cultivated land.


SFP Volume 8

Online since: October 2020

Description: This volume of the "Sustainable Food Production" reports about the last researches in food science like the amino acid composition of Nigerian beef jerky meat called Kilishi and the study on the effect of heat treatments (roasting, boiling and autoclaving) on the physical, nutritional and functional properties of in-shell and shelled peanut (Arachis hypogaea). As well in this volume presented papers as research on comparing the quality parameters at four different ripening stages of pineapple (cultivar Mauritius-Queen type) and their effect on sensory properties after dehydration and discussed soil nutrient management methods that will maximize the pro-vitamin A content of bio fortified Orange fleshed sweet potatoes.


SFP Volume 7

Online since: February 2020


This volume of Sustainable Food Production provides research in different fields of Food Science: studying of effective using yam production for farming and environment in the tropic; some effects of different fermentation time on the microbial, mineral and proximate composition Parkia biglobosa seeds, which can be used for agricultural production; the impact of calcium superphosphate as soil amendments and influence on plant growing.


SFP Volume 6

Online since: May 2019


The sixth volume of the journal Sustainable Food Production presents the latest scientific outputs on studying the potency of seed extracts of Aframomum melegueta (Roscoe) K.Schum. against postharvest rot fungi isolated from lime and lemon fruits; efficacy of production from cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) of the three types of food: fried granules (garri), dough (fufu or akpu) and chips; determination of the effects of planting space on the nutrient composition of “Umuspol” and “Ex-Onyunga” orange fleshed sweet potatoes breeds grown in the South-East Nigeria as well as estimation of the impact of potassium on natural storage ability of different potatoes varieties.

The issue ends with the article devoted to the analysis of the influencing of goat production on the environment in the Humid Tropics in the example of Southeast Nigeria.


SFP Volume 5

Online since: February 2019

Description: The fifth volume of the journal Sustainable Food Production shows the latest investigations concerned with the determination of the best variety and the effective level of phosphorus fertilization for groundnut (Arahis hypogaea L.) during the season as well as estimation of the effect of using selected organic residues and inorganic fertilizer on the growth and yield of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus Moench) in Nigeria; the comparison of the nutritional and proximate values of cocoyam puddings prepared from ede-ocha (Xanthosoma sagitifolium Liebm.) and ede-cocindia (Colocasia esculenta L. Schott); studying the possibility of the replacement chicken egg with duck egg in biscuit production and its value to the physical, nutritional and sensorial qualities of biscuits.
The review devoted to the peculiarities of growing, nutritional benefits and health advantages of soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.) is also presented in this issue.


SFP Volume 4

Online since: December 2018


The fourth volume of the journal Sustainable Food Production starts from the investigation concerned with assessment of the traditional and sustainable harvesting methods on the collection of two leading non-timber forest products Griffonia simplicifolia Baill. and Xylopia aethiopica A.Rich. in Liberia. The further studies dealt with the preliminary evaluation of the microbiological quality of the peanuts produced in Nigeria for pathogens such as Salmonella spp., Listeria spp., Escherichia coli and coliform bacteria, as well as mold, yeast and total aerobic mesophilic microflora; estimation of the antifunginal activity of volatile compounds from essential oil of ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) for the control of Botryodiplodia theobromae causing rot of white yam; comparison the fermentation characteristics of kombucha from black tea or green tea as nitrogen sources and white sugar or brown sugar as carbon sources in a 30-day fermentation time. Finally, it can be found a review on the available information on the quality of palm oil obtained locally in Imo state, Nigeria.


SFP Volume 3

Online since: November 2018

Description: The third volume of the journal Sustainable Food Production presents the latest researches concerned with calibration and evaluation of APSIM crop model with further assessment of climate change impact on sorghum growth in Machakos, Kenia;  estimation of the influence of salinity on the growth and yield of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) genotypes in Nigeria; assesment of comparative nutritional quality of both male and female Neopetrolisthes maculatus flesh regarding their proximate, mineral, vitamin compositions, mineral safety index and mineral ratios; comparison of the heavy metal concentrations of selected vegetables harvested from crude oil-producing and non-oil-producing states in Nigeria; determination of the incidence of Campylobacter jejuni in selected food products in Imo state, Nigeria.


SFP Volume 2

Online since: June 2018


The second volume of the journal Sustainable Food Production offers the recent findings devoted to the determination of the effects of different levels of Mucuna utilis leaf meal on the haematology and serum biochemistry of broiler finisher birds; evaluation of the effect of a dietary supplementation of a mixture of saponin-rich plants on the ammonia-nitrogen excretion of a major aquaculture species, Nile Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus), and comparison of the different doses in order to assess the most suitable level of supplementation; studying the proximate and mineral analysis of fermented African oil bean seed ‘ugba’; the determination of the activity of bromelain extracted from the peels and crowns of the MD2 and Sugarloaf pineapple varieties cultivated in Ghana; exploring the effects of sprouting on the physicochemical and sensory properties of Gworo (Cola nitida) and Ojigbo (Cola acuminata) kola nuts.
