    Author(s): Michael KG, Sogbesan OA and Onyia LUMichael KG, Sogbesan OA and Onyia LU

    The present study was undertaken to analyze the effect of various processing methods. Raw, Boiled, Toasted, Soaked and Fermented methods were applied on Canavalia ensiformis Jack bean seed meals to determine their nutritional compositions. The applied methods were found to improve the protein content (30%-36.60%), lipid (5.85%-9.23%), fiber (3.25%-6.35%), ash (3.5%-5.32%), Nitrogen-free extract (38.79%-46.21%). There was an increase in the mineral composition with processing methods; potassium, calcium and sodium were the most abundant macro minerals in Canavalia seed meal. There was also an increase in the essential amino acids of the processed minerals. Methionine content was increased due to fermentation (2.12 g/100 g) as compared to the raw (0.81 g/100 g). Vitamins A (1425.32-6124.56 IU/100 g), B1 (0.15-0.32 mg/100 g), B3 (0.06-0.21 mg/100 g), B6 (0.03-0.19 mg/100 g), C (7.54-25.6.. Read More»
