Moisture, lipid, fatty acid, protein, amino acid, ash, starch, free sugars, and cellulose concentrations in the aerial part of 10 wild plant legumes, growing in Mediterranean French pastures (Anthyllis vulneraria, Coronilla emerus, Coronilla minima, Coronilla varia, Cytisus sessilifolius, Dorycnium suffruticosum, Lotus delortii, Onobrychis saxatilis, Ononis minutissima, and Psoralea bituminosa), were determined. The dried aerial part of these plants contained 8.4-15.7% protein and 1.2-1.8… 

Composition of Liliifloreae from Mediterranean Pastures

Moisture, lipid, fatty acid, protein, amino acid, ash, starch, free sugars, and cellulose concentrations in the aerial part of nine wild Liliifloreae growing in Mediterranean pastures were determined.

Nutritional value of Mediterranean sheep's burnet (Sanguisorba minor ssp. muricata).

Investigations with scanning electron microscopy gave the morphological structure of this plant, in particular for akene ornamentation, and taxonomic characters confirmed the identification of the muricata subspecies.

Studies on the functional properties and the nutritive values of amura plant starch (Tacca involucrata) a wild tropical plant.

Starch, is a natural biodegradable biopolymer which is in high demand recently for use in many industrial products. However, this has greatly increased the search for more new sources of starch from

Chemical Composition and Nutritive Value of Some Wild-Gathered Tropical Plant Seeds

It is concluded that these less familiar wild seed plants should not be ignored, but further investigation into possible toxic and antinutrient factors, amino acid patterns, digestibility, and fatty acid composition is still required before recommendations are made.

Variation in forage quality and chemical composition among italian accessions of Bituminaria bituminosa (L.) Stirt

The quality parameters indicated this species as a good forage source, showingnutritive values similar to those of other wild legume species and relations among forage quality parameters, chemical components and climatic features at sites of origin were assessed.

Nutritional and antinutritional components of Canavalia spp. seeds from the west coast sand dunes of India

The study results suggest that the seeds of C. cathartica and C. maritima possess potential nutritive value particularly higher protein, essential amino acids and low levels of antinutritional factors.

Nutritional Composition of Grewia Species (Grewia tenax (Forsk.) Fiori, G. flavescens Juss and G. Villosa Willd) Fruits

Evidence is provided that these local traditional fruits could be important contributors to improving the nutritional content of rural and urban people and supports the traditional use of Grewia spp in the treatment of anaemia.

Impact of Electron Beam Irradiation on the Nutritional Attributes of Seeds of Coastal Sand Dune Wild Legume Canavalia cathartica

The wild legume Canavalia cathartica distributed in the coastal sand dunes and mangroves of the southwest coast of India possesses several traits like fast growth, production of large quantity of



Compositional and morphological characteristics of cow cockle (Saponaria vaccaria) seed, a potential alternative crop

The results revealed that the composition of whole, mature seed of cow cockle is similar to that of most cereal grains; dehulled seeds, however, contain over 77% starch with very small granules of uniform size, while the hulls contain about 1% saponins; these seed constituents may find unique applications in the food/feed and cosmetics industries.

Lipid, fatty acid, amino acid, and mineral compositions of five edible plant leaves.

Leaves of Hibiscus manihot, Ipomoea aquatica, Brassica juncea, Cucurbita maxima and Sechium edule are used in culinary preparation by Papua New Guineans and are considered of economic and nutritional

Triterpene alcohols, methylsterols, sterols, and fatty acids in five Malagasy legume seed oils

This paper reports a study of the chemical composition of the neutral lipids which form 0.8-46.7% of five legumes (Arachis hypogea, Voandzei subterranea, Phaseolus lunatus, Lens esculentus, and Vigna

Nitrogen-to-protein conversion factor for ten cereals and six legumes or oilseeds. A reappraisal of its definition and determination. Variation according to species and to seed protein content

The purpose of the paper was to show that, in the absence of perfectly accurate values of the conversion factor, it is still possible to accurately determine its upper and lower limits, which are

Amino Acid Composition and Nitrogen-to-Protein Conversion Factors for Animal and Plant Foods

A micro-method for the estimation of oil content and fatty acid composition in seeds with special reference to cyclopropenoic acids

A micro-method is described for the routine estimation of oil content and fatty acid composition in seeds containing cyclopropenoic fatty acids (CPEFA) by determination of the total and component

Composition of the diet of sheep grazing swards of differing white clover content and spatial distribution

There was no correlation for either grass or clover between preference and sward content on mixed plots, which implies that sheep were grazing to optimise energy intake, and there was no evidence for preferential selection of clover from mixed swards in Periods 2 and 3.
