Evaluation of nutritional parameters of feed formulated from SoyabeanAuthor(s):
Nutrition is the science that interprets the interaction of nutrients and other substances in food in relation to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health and disease of an organism. Good nutrition in production system is essential to produce a healthy and high quality product. Nutrition involves various chemical reactions and physiological processes which transform food into body tissues and activities.
The first consideration for formulation of feed is the quality of the feed ingredients. Hence, for present work Soyabean (Glycine max) has been selected as the raw material for formulation. It is probably the most promising alternative protein source for fish meal. It is widely used as the cost effective alternative for high quality fish meal in feeds for many aquaculture fish species due to its high protein content, excellent amino acid profile, low cost, availability and steady supply as compared to the other plant protein sources. The nutritional quality of feed or ingredients depends upon the availability of nutrients to the fish; hence the present study was carried out to assess the nutritional parameters in formulated feeds.
The analytical result reveals that formulated feed was nutritionally rich as compared to conventional feed- deoiled groundnut cake. Pages: 166-169 | 692 Views 38 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
