The nutritional value of grape seeds for sheep

Journal of the Australian Institute of Agricultural Science 48(4): 226-228

The nutritional value of grape seeds for sheep

The protein content of the seeds of 7 Australian grape cultivars ranged from 9.7 to 12.7%, and the oil content from 7.7 to 14.3%. Linoleic acid comprised about two-thirds of the long-chain fatty acids in the oil. In metabolism trials 10-month-old crossbred lambs were given 1 kg daily of a pelleted diet based on lucerne hay and oats, without grape seeds or with 17% of washed, dried, ground Shiraz grape seeds.

On the naturally occurring growth substances in grape seeds and their changes during low temperature after ripening. Studies were made on the endogenous auxins, inhibitors and gibberellin-like substances in grape seeds stored moist at 5 degrees C. and at room temperature. The results showed that moist after-ripening at 5 degrees resulted in an increase in the am...
