Composition and nutritive value of peas for pigs: a review of European results



Composition and nutritive value of peas for pigs: a review of European results



Livestock Production Science 26(3): 155-175



Pea (Pisum sativum) is the legume seed most used for pig feeding in Europe. Its crude protein content is intermediate between soya bean meal and grains. As for other legume seeds or grains, linear regressions have been established between amino acid and crude protein contents. Pea protein contains more lysine but less sulphur amino acids and tryptophan than soya bean meal protein. Some pea cultivars contain antinutritional factors such as trypsin inhibitors, lectins and a-galactosides; more over tannins are found in dark-flowered cultivars. The digestible energy value is similar to soya bean meal or grains for white-flowered peas (P. sativum hortense) and slightly lower for dark-flowered peas (P. sativum arvense).
