Quality and safety of Italian white maize varieties

Lanzanova C. - Alfieri M. - Locatelli S. - Mascheroni S. - Facchinetti F. - Valoti P. - Balconi C. - Redaelli R.

In order to recover the biodiversity of traditionally cultivated maize in Northern Italy, during 2014 eighteen white maize varieties (VA) from CREA Bergamo genebank, characterized by a wide range of morphological and technological grain traits, were cultivated in Bergamo and Lovero (SO). At harvest chemical and safety analyses on open-pollinated ears were carried out. Agronomic parameters and yield resulted different in the two trials, revealing a variable adaptation of the varieties to the environment. Chemical composition of the grain showed that samples from Bergamo accumulated more protein and lipid, whereas the varieties from Lovero showed a higher content of starch and TAC. Some varieties (VA86, VA117, VA1239) were distinguished in both environments for their protein and lipid content; on the other hand, the yield of VA530 and VA535 in Lovero was close to the production of the two hybrid testers. Considerable variability was observed in fumonisin and aflatoxin B1 contamination. Moreover, interesting data related to the antioxidant capacity of white varieties, very similar to the yellow kernel hybrid testers, pointed out the opportunity of using these genotypes as starting material for breeding programs aimed at the development of white maize hybrids for the food chain.

Durum wheat debranning using innovative diamond wheels.Technical and economic advantages

Montanari R. - Marchini D. - Bigna E.

Debranning has the aim to remove the outer layers of the pericarp from wheat kernel. Increasing number of industrial and research studies reports the advantages of debranning Durum wheat prior to milling. Ocrim - a worldwide leading plant producer for the milling sector, with particular reference to wheat milling - already produces debranning systems, based on the use of traditional silicon carbide wheels. However the mineral nature of these traditional wheels, can lead to the formation of cracks and crevices after a certain number of production cycles. For this reason, Ocrim proposed an innovative grinding wheel, with a metallic support structure and a thin surface deposition of synthetic diamonds. To evaluate such innovative grinding wheel, a study was carried out as part of a collaboration between the company Ocrim, the Industrial Engineering Department of the University of Parma and the spin-off company of the University of Parma FMB-Eng.In.E.
