Abstract
The chemical composition and energy content were studied in representative samples from six batches of plantain foliage (Musa paradisiaca) grounded and sun-dried. Plantain foliage residues (RPF) were composed of l eaves and the higher third of the pseudostem. Mean dry matter and energy contents were 92.76% and 16.39 KJ/g DM. Nutrient content was: 12.79 ash; 3.80 ether extract; 1.56 N; 1.26 alpha-amino N; 42.24 crude fibre, 40.64 acid detergent fibre; 68.57 neutral detergent fibre; 71.08 total dietary fibre; 67.79 insoluble dietary fibre; 6.05% detergent lignin in any bases respectively. Lysine, sulfure amino acids and threonine content were 3.50, 2.43 and 3.49 g/16 g N respectively. According to the two-step in vitro digestibility (pepsin/pancreatin), digestible DM and N were 29.50 and 29.19% respectively. It is suggested that RFP meal may be a source of energy to pigs by fermentation of its cell wall.
