  The proximate composition, mineral, physical characteristics and in vitro digestibilities of cucumber (Cucumis sativus) were determined using standard methods of analysis. The results revealed that the mesocarp, epicarp and endocarp of the cucumber contained: 1.68, 3.84 and 0.22% of protein, respectively. The relative fat content varied from a low of 0.02% in endocarp to a high of 0.56% in epicarp, moisture and ash contents were comparable with values of literatures cited. As expected macro minerals were higher than the micro minerals. Na had the highest value followed by Mg, K and Ca. Pb was not detected. In vitro digestibilities of the samples were determined for 10 min. Percentage digestibilities varied thus: epicarp (68.5) mesocarp (78.2) and endocarp (80.5). From the obtained results, it was observed that epicarp of the sample had higher values for ash, protein, fat, fiber and carbohydrate than mesocarp and epicarp. It is hoped that these results would add to existing nutrition data.

  Cockroach, earthworm and soldier ants were analyzed for their proximate compositions, minerals and phytate contents. Values for proximate composition ranged thus: cockroach (protein 9.26%; fat 21.21%; fibre 7.52%; ash 6.85%; moisture 13.85% and carbohydrate 41.33%; earthworm (protein 50.22%; fat 8.62%; fibre 1.36%; ash 26.56%; moisture 8.53% and carbohydrate 4.73%; soldier ants (protein 12.09%; fat 18.92%; fibre 20.13% ash 8.54% moisture 12.62% and carbohydrate 27.72%. Calcium was the most abundant mineral present while Cd was not detectable. The levels of phytate and phytate phosphorus were high and the samples had more than 30% of their total phosphorus linked to phytate. The Ca: Phytate molar ratios of the samples were relatively low. Based on the results it is suggested that nutritional potentials of cockroach, soldier ants and earthworm should be harnessed for use in animal feed formulation.
