From an attempt made to develop lactose-free milk based on sunflower seed
kernel dehulled from rain-fed and irrigated seeds, the following points can be
• The rain-fed sunflower kernel contains higher levels of protein and fat
compared to the irrigated sunflower kernel which was found to contain higher
levels of fiber and carbohydrates.
• Solubility of proteins in sunflower seed kernel was found to differ according to
seed source. The filtered liquid was found to contain more soluble proteins
compared to the centrifuged liquid.
• pH8 was found to yield highest level of soluble proteins in rain-fed seed
kernel, whereas pH7 gave highest level of protein solubility in irrigated seed
• Milk based on irrigated sunflower kernel was found to be more acceptable in
flavor, taste, aftertaste, and overall quality than both milk based on rain-fed
seed kernel and a commercial lactose-free milk.
• When the sunflower seed kernel milk was flavored, assessors judged irrigated
sunflower seed kernel milk with strawberry flavor superior compared to the
other flavors used.
• Sunflower milk based on different kernels has similar levels of macronutrients
except for total calories and carbohydrates which are higher in rain-fed kernel
• With respect to micronutrients in kernel milk, the levels of iron and
magnesium were found higher in sunflower seed kernel milk compared to cow
