Comparative cell wall constituent levels of tannin free and tannin containing cultivars of faba beans vicia faba



Comparative cell wall constituent levels of tannin free and tannin containing cultivars of faba beans vicia faba



Canadian Journal of Animal Science 58(4): 775-782



A series of experiments were conducted with tannin-free and tannin-containing cultivars of fababeans [Diana and Triple White]. The in vitro dry matter digestibility of the cotyledon portion of the 2 groups of fababeans was the same (88.2%) while the in vitro digestibility of the testa portion of the tannin-free cultivars was much higher (27.6%) than that of the tannin-containing cultivars (9.2%). The concentrations of certain cell wall constituents in the testae of tannin-free and tannin-containing cultivars were also different (P < 0.01). The respective average values for the 2 groups were: condensed tannins, 0.2 and 4.9%; lignin, 4.2 and 6.2%; acid detergent fiber, 72 and 66%; and cellulose, 67 and 60%. There was a negative correlation between the in vitro dry matter digestibility and the amount per unit wt of whole beans of either condensed tannin (r = -0.86, P < 0.01) or lignin (r = -0.89, P < 0.01). When expressed on a similar basis there was no correlation between levels of cellulose or acid detergent fiber and in vitro dry matter digestibility. [The feeding of fababeans to poultry and cattle was discussed.].
