Characterisation of tannins and in vitro protein digestibility of several Lotus corniculatus varieties

Abstract

Seven birdsfoot trefoil (BFT) varieties (Lotus corniculatus) grown in Sweden, were harvested at the 50% ̄owering stage and analysed for tannins by the radial diffusion and HCl±butanol methods. The ̄avan-3-ol composition of different BFT tannins was determined by HPLC. Tannins were isolated and examined for their molecular weight distributions by HPLC gel… (More)
