Nutritional Composition of Garri Sievates Collected from Some Locations in Southern Nigeria
Nwokoro Smart O., Adegunloye Helen D. and Ikhinmwin A. Fidelis

Abstract:
The study was initiated to determine the chemical composition of white and yellow garri sievates collected from ten locations in Southern Nigeria. Parameters measured were proximate (DM, CP, EE, CF, NFE, Ash), Caloric Value, HCN, neutral detergent (NDF) and acid detergent (ADF) fibres, hemicellulose and starch. Others were Ca, P, S, Na, K and Mg. The results indicated zonal variation for some of the measured indices (whether for white or yellow sievates). Also, apart from the EE and HCN constituents of the two types of sievates, all other measurements were not appreciably different. Results revealed a DM of 86.80, CP (1.17%), CF (2.45%), EE (0.76%), Ash (1.2%), NFE (94.44%) and 389.16kcal/100g for the combined samples. However, the EE for the white and yellow sievates were 0.41% and 1.10% respectively, and similarly 1.44 and 0.93 mg/100g for HCN.
