Evaluation of Yam Starch (Discorea rotundata) as Aquatic Feed Binder



A.M. Orire, S.O.E. Sadiku and L.O. Tiamiyu
 
ABSTRACT

This experiment was conducted to evaluate the suitability of yam starch as a local alternative binding agent in aquatic feed, which is effective and nutritive. The binding property of yam starch in feed pellet, increased significantly with the levels of inclusion in fish feed production. Five percent (5%), inclusion level was found to be appropriate in producing desirable water stable pellet that is also firm to handling during transportation and storage.
