    • Composition and thermal properties of starch in flint maize (Zea mays, L.) kernels: location and crop management effects 

      Actis, Marcos; Farroni, Abel Eduardo; Andrade, Fernando Hector; Valentinuz, Oscar Rodolfo; Cirilo, Alfredo Gabriel (Gerencia de Comunicación e Imagen Institucional, DG-SICyP, INTA, 2020-04)
      Flint maize kernels are processed by the dry-milling industry to produce the flaking grits used thereafter in the corn flakes industry. Flaking-grit yield during milling depends on kernel hardness whereas corn flakes ...
    • Crop management affects dry-milling quality of flint maize kernels 

      Cirilo, Alfredo Gabriel; Actis, Marcos; Andrade, Fernando Hector; Valentinuz, Oscar Rodolfo (Elsevier, 2011-05)
      Dry-milling performance of maize (Zea mays, L.) kernels primarily depends on their hardness. The flint type is harder than the dent and semi-dent maize, yielding a higher proportion of big endosperm pieces in the mill. ...
