Abstract:
The investigation was carried out to determine the chemical composition of cassava offals and cassava sievates collected from 5 locations in Edo State, Nigeria. Following sun-drying (30-35oC), the cassava by-products were analyzed for protein, fibre, carbohydrate, cyanide, ash and fat. The results revealed that the DM for the sievates ranged between 87.06 and 91.88%; (P (1.02 - 1.07%); EE (0.50 - 0.84%); and CF (3.01 - 3.25%). Others were ash (between 1.74 and 2.01%), Carbohydrate (47.20 - 66.00%) and cyanide between 1.24 and 1.63mg/kg. In addition, those for the cassava offals were between 1.72 and 2.21%CP; 0.48 - 0.85%EE; 1.26 - 3.20% CF; starch (between 70.50 and 77.52%) and cyanide (0.97 - 1.20mg/kg). Thus, indicating variations with respect to location in most cases.
