Cooking improved the nutrient content of 'eba" (sample 4) with significant reduction in carbohydrate content, and hence, gross energy
compared to gari (sample 2).
Minimum gross energy
and crude protein content of the diet for females were projected by setting metabolizability of energy at 60%, 70%, and 63% in late winter (Julian month 3.
This is consistent with the results reported by Wang et al  who showed that no differences were found in daily balance of gross energy
between two barley cultivars with different fiber content.
The objectives of this study were to report chemical composition of copra byproducts to establish a standard for distinguishing CM and CE, and to develop the prediction equations for ether extract (EE) and gross energy
(GE) concentrations in the copra byproducts.
Likewise, crude fat and gross energy
digestibility also followed the same trend as that was observed in the case of crude protein digestibility.
The PPF and eggs were analysed for crude protein (CP), ether extract (EE) and moisture, and the PPF was also analysed for ash, crude fibre (CF), and gross energy
(GE) according to the methods of Silva and Queiroz (2002).
Determination of the coefficients of digestibility (CD) of dry matter (CDDM), gross energy
(CDGE), crude protein (CDCP), calcium and phosphorus for the diets and ingredients were calculated.
Crude fat and apparent gross energy
digestibility performed their best at 750 FTU kg-1 followed by 1000 FTU kg-1 level, while maximum crude protein digestibility was observed at 1000 FTU kg-1 level.
Energy content was analysed as gross energy
, which was evaluated by means of the Parr adiabatic bomb calorimetry.
content of the samples was estimated by combusting three replicates per treatment in a ballistic bomb calorimeter using benzoic acid as the standard.
