Summary of my completed research works can be categorized as follows:
(a) Microbial Taxonomy
Scientific information was provided on the associated microorganisms of the fermented products
studied. Characterization of the microbes using both phenotypic and biochemical methods were
carried out. Some of the fermented products and isolates were reported for the first time.
Microbial taxonomy is an essential phase in the study of any fermentation process. This is
because biotechnological typing of the isolates cannot be done without the knowledge of the
identities of the associated microorganisms of any fermenting matrix.
(b) Biochemical Studies
Since fermented foods form a substantial part of the diet in sub-Saharan Africa, research efforts
were geared towards providing information on the biochemical status of some of these food
products. Some of the papers reported the biological ennoblement resulting from fermentation of
the raw materials, while enzyme activities were also monitored. Of note is the effect of
galactosidase treatment on soybeans. It was observed that the treatment not only significantly
reduced the anti-nutritional constituents of the beans; the soymilk prepared from the treated
beans had a ‘vanilla-like’ aroma and acceptable taste, as oppos
