Evaluation of the seed pod of carob (Ceratonia siliqua) as animal feed. II. Performance and apparent digestibility when fed to rats



Evaluation of the seed pod of carob (Ceratonia siliqua) as animal feed. II. Performance and apparent digestibility when fed to rats



Revista do Centro de Ciencias Rurais 7(1): 1-8



Experiments were made with rats to determine the feed value of seed pods of C. siliqua for non-ruminant animals. Seed pods were added to a commercial poultry ration in the proportions 0, 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100%. Addition of seed pods to the ration was highly injurious to rats; a diet containing >60% seed-pod material caused severe illness and deaths. Digestibility of dry matter, crude protein and gross energy decreased markedly with increasing proportions of seed pod in the diet.
