The effect of germination time, during malting, on phytate and tannin concentration as well as on the In-vitro protein digestibility of some sorghum types was investigated. The increase in the germination time led to a decrease in the phytate content from the initial range of 1004.6-1097.4 mg/100g, at zero-hour germination, to a range of 457.2-626.3 mg/100g at 48-hour germination time. A further decrease in the phytate content was obtained at 96-hour germination time with a range of 215.4 -298.3 mg/100g. A maximum of 71.5-79.2% phytate reduction capacity at 96-hour germination time was attainable with the sorghum types. The increase in germination time also caused the tannin concentration to decrease. The initial tannin concentration (0.23-4.47 mg/g), at zero-hour germination time, decreased to 0.15-3.35 mg/g at 48-hour germination time while a range of 0.13-3.07 mg/g was obtained at 96-hour germination time. A maximum of 25.9-45.8% tannin reduction capacity at 96-hour germination time was attainable with the sorghum types. The In-vitro protein digestibility of the sorghum types increased from the initial level (32.1-45.1%), at zero-hour germination time, to 42.8-61.3% at 48-hour germination time while that of 96-hour germination time was 46.7-64.8%. It may be concluded that the decrease in the anti-nutritional factors and improvement in the protein digestibility of sorghum types during the malting process was essentially a function of germination time and sorghum grain variability.
