Color of sorghum milled products and foods is an important aspect of qualrty that must be measured Color measurements on sorghum grain, roti and tortilla samples using the Hunter Lab Color Drfference Meter and the Munsell Soil Color Charts showed that Munsell Color Charts are effective for a rapid and inexpensive assessment of a large number of samples from quality breeding programs. It would be possible to obtain standardized color schemes to assess a wide array of sorghum food products among laboratories. Sophisticated instruments such as the Hunter Lab Color Difference Meter can be used for fundamental studies to backup crop improvement programs.
