This experiment demonstrated no advantage in using a waxy sorghum over a conventional sorghum for steam flaking. Even though the waxy variety had a slight increase in in-vitro gas production after flaking, the benefit was outweighed by the significant increase in energy requirement and significant decrease in production rate during processing.
