Chemical composition of dry peas (Pisum sativum L.) and its effect on the feeding value for poultry



Chemical composition of dry peas (Pisum sativum L.) and its effect on the feeding value for poultry



Ubersichten zur Tierernahrung 24(2): 167-198



A review of current literature on the chemical composition and effects of feeding dry peas, Pisum sativum, to poultry is presented. Digestibility of organic matter and CP is dependent on flower colour; coloured flowering cultivars are not as digestible as white flowering varieties. Antinutritional factors like tannins, lectins, trypsin/chymotrypsin inhibitors, saponins, glycosidic oligosaccharides, are present only in small amounts in new cultivars.
