Nutritional evaluation of four optimized cassava-based complementary foods

  Complementary foods were formulated and their nutritional composition analyzed from three yellow and one white cassava varieties. The composites were analyzed for proximate, mineral, fatty acids and amino acids. The mean values for the proximate composition of the diets are moisture (41.4 g kg-1) wet weight, ash (47.4 g kg-1), crude protein (145.8 g kg-1), crude fat (106.7 g kg-1), crude fiber (21.1 g kg-1),...

Effect of deep frying on furazolidone anticoccidial drug residues in liver and muscle tissues of chicken

  This study investigated the effect of deep frying (210oC/15 min) on furazolidone residues in liver and muscle tissues of chicken. Furazolidone was administered (2 mg/kg body weight) orally to chicken daily for five days. The hens were then sacrificed at 1, 5, 24 168 and 264 h after treatment stopped and liver and muscle tissue samples obtained. The samples were deep fried, blended with distilled water and...
