The oxidative stability of pretreated full-fat soybean flour (FFSF) was evaluated under commercial (Experiment I) and accelerated conditions (Experiment II). In Experiment I, soybeans were pretreated using germination, soaking (24 h), or roasting (110-120 °C), and the dried, milled FFSF was stored for 120 days under commercial storage conditions in two cities in Ghana. Acid value (AV) and peroxide value (PV) were determined. The proximate and sensory quality of Tuo Zaafi, a maize-only dish in northern Ghana enriched with 10-30% of the pretreated FFSF, was assessed. Before storage, all samples had similar PV (1.907-4.305 mEq/kg oil); however, the AV of the germinated sample was higher than that of the unprocessed samples (10.83 vs. 3.13 mgKOH/g oil; p < 0.001). After storage, although AV fluctuated, the PV was similar (2.39-3.74 mEq/kg oil; p=1.00). Storage location showed no significant differences in terms of AV (4.96-4.97 mgKOH/g oil; p=0.994), unlike PV...
