The proximate composition and functional properties of three edible mushroom (Ganoderma spp., Omphalotus olearius (DC.) Sing. and Hebeloma mesophaeum (Pers.) Quél.) flours used in Nasarawa state, Nigaria were investigated using standard analytical techniques. The samples contained crude protein in the range of 18.5% in Omphalotus olearius to 21.5% in(More)
The levels of lead, zinc, copper, iron, manganese, cadmium and mercury were determined in various body parts of two species of catfish; Clarias gariepinus and Synodontis schall, water and sediment samples from Uke stream using atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS) method. The results obtained showed that iron (Fe) had the highest concentration with(More)
The amino acid composition of the brain and eyes of the matured female guinea fowl (Numida meleagris) was determined on a dry weight basis. The total essential amino acids ranged from 38.4-37.5g/100 g crude protein or from 47.5–52.2 % of the total amino acid. The amino acid score showed that lysine ranged from 0.81 – 0.89 (on whole hen’s egg comparison),(More)
Water, soil sediment and seafood [crab (Sudananautes africanus africanus), lobster (Palaemon paucidens), African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) and African catfish (Synodontis schall)] samples collected from River Benue (Nigeria) were analysed for sodium (Na), potassium (K), copper (Cu), magnesium (Mg), iron (Fe), calcium (Ca), zinc (Zn), lead (Pb), cadmium(More)
An investigation into the concentrations and distributions of lead, magnesium, zinc, chromium, iron, manganese and copper in the soil sediment, river water and the organs of Clarias gariepinus and Tilapia quineensis was undertaken with a view to evaluating the interplay of these inorganic minerals in the various matrices. The fishes were of variable sizes(More)
