Abstract

A study was conducted to determine physical and chemical characteristics of com fines removed by a Kice Mini-Aspirator. Five air velocities were used to separate mixtures of com fines and whole kernels into heavies and liftings. As aspirator air velocity was increased, removal efficiency of every size fraction increased; starch content of liftings decreased, whereas oil content increased and protein content was unchanged.
