Abstract

Experiments were conducted to test the effect different treatment process like dehulling, soaking, autoclaving, germination and germination in combination with autoclaving on proximate composition and antinutritional factors (ANFs) of legume seeds, cow pea and mung bean. An in vivo digestibility trial was conducted in black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon to determine the coefficient of total tract apparent digestibility (CTTAD) of differently processed legume seeds. The CTTADs were determined by comparing the concentrations of digestibility marker (Cr2O3) in the feed and faeces of the juvenile shrimp (4±0.5 g). Seeds processed by germination in combination with autoclaving were low in ANFs and higher in proximate composition with increased protein contents of 18.3 and 15.6% in cow
