Composition of oil palm byproducts used as feedstuff in Costa Rica



Composition of oil palm byproducts used as feedstuff in Costa Rica



Agronomia Costarricense 27(1): 7-18



The nutritional quality and variability of palm kernel meal solvent-extracted (PKMSE), palm kernel meal expeller-extracted (PKMEE), full fat palm kernel (ffPK), crude palm oil (CPO) and palm oil free fatty acids (POFFA) were analysed. Results showed that PKMSE and PKMEE from Costa Rica have similar nutritional composition than the ones reported in international literature, except for a higher residual fat content.
