Extraction rates and chemical composition of seed types in egusi (Colocynthis citrullus L. )

, : Extraction rates and chemical composition of seed types in egusi (Colocynthis citrullus L. ). Acta Horticulturae (53): 287-290

Egusi seeds were classified on the basis of thickness of the seed coat and the edge, texture of the seed coat and seed size. 5 seed types were studied for the proportion of the shell by vol. and wt. to the kernel (extraction rate). Kernels of the different seed types were analysed for fats and oils, total-N, soluble sugars, starch, P, K, Ca and Mg, on DM basis.

Meteoroids captured by the Earth into orbits with perigees larger than the Earth's radius can graze the atmosphere and travel a long distance, from one to several thousand kilometers, at low altitudes. The dynamics of large grazing asteroids,...

The aim of this study was the comparison between the cerclage associated to articular cartilage curettage with the injection of monoiodoacetate to induce ankylosis of the proximal interphalangeal joint (PIJ) in horses. Twelve horses were randomly...
