Sorghum and Pearl Millet Lipids.

L. W. Rooney. Copyright 1978 by the American Association of Cereal Chemists, Inc. 

The grain of Sorghum bicolor and Pennisetum typhoides (pearl millet) contains about 3.5 and 5.5% ether- extractable material, respectively. The lipids are concentrated in the germ. Sorghum germ oil is similar to corn oil in fatty acid composition and other properties. Pearl millet oil appears to contain more saturated fatty acids than corn and sorghum oil. Information on sorghum and especially pearl millet lipids is limited.
