Enzymatic and haematological changes in rats fed owoh: A Nigerian condiment from fermented cotton seeds

The proximate, energy, microbial load of two different owoh samples were determined using standard methods. The enzymatic, haematological and nutritional changes in rats fed owoh samples were also determined. The bacterial loads in the two owoh samples ranged between 4.5 × 106 and 7.5 × 107 cfu/g in Bacillus fermented owoh (BFO) and, 5.7 ×...

Isolation and proximate determination of protein using defatted sesame seed oil cake

Sesame seed was used to extract oil and the cake, which has high amount of protein, was wasted after the extraction. Hence, the present study was done to isolate protein from defatted sesame seed oil cake and the nutrition content was determined. Sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS PAGE) was used to isolate the protein; among the three BSS (British Standard Sieve) of the sesame seed...
