The aim of this study was to identify sugar products from dockounou digestion. Tests of digestibility on various dockounou using a digestive juice of young snails namly Archachatina ventricosa and experimental acid hydrolysis were used. The results had showed that boiled dockounou were more hydrolysis than the backed one. Specifically, the rice boiled dockounou was more hydrolyzed than the maize boiled dockounou. Both rice boiled an baked dockounou are more hydrolyzed than the maize dockounou did. The sugars liberated for rice backed dockounou range from 0 to 0.80 µmol thereby it’s 0 to 2.40 µmol for maize one. These results are significantly differents (p≤0.05). Enzymatic or acid hydrolysis products of boiled and backed dockounou are only the glucose. The intensity of this reducing sugar liberation depends on the time. This information shows, in the whole, that dockounou is an energetic dishe for children neither for diabetics.
