Response of broiler chickens to heat treatment of field beans (Vicia faba L.)

Response of broiler chickens to heat treatment of field beans (Vicia faba L.)

Protein quality from leguminous crops: 236-242

When broilers were fed from 1 to 18 days on steam-pelleted diets with 20% field beans (Vicia faba) weight gain and efficiency of feed conversion were not significantly different from those of birds fed on non-pelleted diets. When the diets had 75% raw or autoclaved beans, weight gain at 14 days was significantly greater and pancreas weight significantly less with the latter.
