High temperature and pressure processing of maize cobs 1. digestibility in vitro of processed cobs



High temperature and pressure processing of maize cobs 1. digestibility in vitro of processed cobs



Animal Feed Science and Technology 12(2): 151-158



Dry matter disappearance in vitro (IVDMD) was used in a series of experiments to evaluate optimum temperature and pressure conditions and optimum moisture level for processing maize cobs. The results showed a bath temperature of 250.degree. C, a pressure of 28 kg/cm2 and 75% moisture to be ideal. A rate of digestion study and chemical analysis on compositional changes associated with processing revealed that processed material was digested faster, suggesting an increase in cell soluble content. Processing reduced concentrations of acid detergent fiber (ADF) and cell wall constituents (CWC) (P < 0.005) but not acid detergent lignin.
