The effect of chemical composition of sunflower seed meal (SFSM) on TMEn and true amino acid digestibility (TAAD) was studied. [] Key Method In Experiment 1, the excretion pattern of three SFSM samples force-fed (30 g) to 10 adult cockerels (Hy-Line) each was followed for 84 h to determine the time interval for complete excretion of SFSM. Type of SFSM did not affect the excretion pattern of DM and energy (P=0.438, and P=0.189, respectively). Dry matter and energy excreted every 12 h decreased linear and…

Nutritional evaluation of sunflower products for poultry as affected by the oil extraction process.

The nutritional value of sunflower seed (SFS) products was determined in two experiments using 180 adult Leghorn-type roosters (Hy-Line) and the effect of oil extraction on TMEn, true fat, and amino acid digestibility (TAAD) of SFS products was studied.

The effect of partial replacement of soyabean meal with sunflower meal on ileal adaptation, nutrient utilisation and growth performance of young turkeys

It is demonstrated that turkey diets can be effectively supplemented with high-quality sunflower meal at a concentration of approximately 70 g/kg, and that at 8 weeks of age the body weight of turkeys fed on diets containing 140 and 210 G/kg of SFM could be lower by 4 and 6%, respectively, than in those receiving the soyabean meal-based diets.

Nutritive value of undehulled sunflower meal as affected by multienzyme supplementation to broiler diets

Dietary SFM at 15.0% could be fed to broilers from d of hatch with no adverse effects on growth and feed utilization, since the correlations between sunflower meal intake and growth or feed utilization were not significant.


The caecectomy is an effective method for increasing precision in measurements of the digestibility of amino acids for these meals in bioassays based on excreta collection in adult cockerels.

The influence of exogenous multienzyme preparation and graded levels of digestible lysine in sunflower meal-based diets on the performance of young broiler chicks two weeks posthatching.

No significant effect of enzyme or level of SFM was observed on BW gain, feed intake, or mortality during the experimental period and enzyme supplementation during 2 wk posthatching has no remarkable effect when used in SFM-based diets.

Response of the caecal micriflora of turkeys fed diets with a different content of high-fibre sunflower meal

It is demonstrated that turkey diets can be effectively supplemented with high-quality sunflower meal at a concentration of approximately 70 g/kg, which results in a significant increase in the content of indigestible carbohydrates, mainly NSP, whose physiological properties are little known.

Nutritional Evaluation of a High-Oil Sunflower Meal in Broiler Starter Diets

SUMMARY Two experiments were conducted with broiler chicks to determine the nutritive value of highoil sunflower meal (HO-SFM), a sunflower oil extraction by-product obtained through screw-press

Exploring nutritive profile, metabolizable energy, protein, and digestible amino acids contents of indigenous protein sources of different locations for male broilers.

Major differences do exist between CM, GM, RSM, and SFM from different locations in terms of nutrients, AME, digestible CP, and AA contents for male broilers.

Nutritional evaluation of sunflower seed and products derived from them. Effect of oil extraction

Solvent oil seems to be the less available fraction of sunflower oil within SFS as the effect of the 2nd extraction proved to be greater than that of the previous press extraction, and their nutritional value should not be calculated from their ingredients.

Effect of Chemical Composition and Dietary Enzyme Supplementation on Metabolisable Energy of Wheat Screenings

Three trials were conducted to determine the available energy of different wheat screening varieties collected from different locations of Khorasan in Iran. In experiment 1, chemical composition and



Effects of overprocessing on the nutritional quality of sunflower meal

Abstract A 2-wk chick study was conducted to evaluate the effect of overprocessing on the in vivo nutritional quality and in vitro protein solubility in .2% KOH of solvent-extracted sunflower meal

Evaluation of the Nutritional Value of Sunflower Meal and the Possibility of Substitution of Sunflower Meal for Soybean Meal in Poultry Diets

Abstract The following investigations were conducted to study the nutritional value of sunflower meal which was produced at various processing temperatures, and the possibility of replacing soybean

Digestibilities of amino acids in soyabean, sunflower and groundnut meals, determined with intact and caecectomised cockerels.

Differences between intact and caecectomised birds for true digestibility evaluations reached significance for threonine, glycine and lysine only, and neither thetrue digestibility of nitrogen, nor that of the sum of the amino acids differed between protein sources.

The effects of dietary cellulose and sand on the combined metabolic plus endogenous energy and amino acid outputs of adult cockerels.

Two experiments were made with adult, Leghorn cockerels to measure the effects of inert materials on metabolic plus endogenous (M+E) excretions and it was concluded that supplemental cellulose had no effect on the AA excretion of adult Leghorns.

The Effect of the Duration of the Excreta Collection Period on the True Metabolizable Energy Values of Feedingstuffs with Slow Rates of Passage

Abstract An experiment was made to study the effect of the duration of the excreta collection period on the true metabolizable energy (TME) values of 8 samples of dehydrated alfalfa, 2 samples of

Determination of amino acid digestibility using caecectomised and intact adult cockerels.

Four subsamples of meat and bone meal (MBM) were heated (150 degrees C) for 0, 1.5, 3 and 5 h and then incorporated into four individual diets (100 g MBM/kg diet). The diets were precision-fed to 10


Abstract The nutritional value of sunflower meal (SM) was investigated. Three experiments were conducted in which sunflower meal protein was substituted for soybean meal (SBM) protein in laying hens

Several laboratories are currently using the rapid excreta collection assay desoribed by Sibbald (1979), or a modification thereof, to measure digestibility of amino acids (AA) in feedingstuffs for

Evaluation of sunflower meal as a feed ingredient in broiler chicken diets: the effect of using supplemental fat or pelleting

Results show that sunflower meal can be used up to 10% of the diet with no adverse effect on growth, however, if supplemental fat is used to increase the energy concentration, it is necessary to use 6% supplemental fat.

The Effects of Feed Input and Excreta Collection Time on Estimates of Metabolic Plus Endogenous Energy Losses in the Bioassay for True Metabolizable Energy

The data illustrate the importance of preliminary tests for nonlinearity and are used to exemplify the statistical procedure for comparing intercepts of lines having different slopes, as well as evidence that the metabolic plus endogenous energy loss varies with the neutral detergent fiber content of the feedingstuff.
