Abstract

Three representative samples of Shea nut cake were collected M/s. Foods, Fats and Fertilizers Pvt. Ltd which is Multi National Company located in West Godavari District A.P for analysis.Analysed for proximate and cell wall constituents. Further, analyzed for mineral profile. It contains 92.42 % Organic matter, 93.26 % dry matter, 13.19% crude protein, 9.84% crude fibre, 2.43% ether extract, and 7.58% total ash content. The mineral content of shea nut cake analyzed and found that it contains calcium (Ca) 0.69, phosphorus (P) 0.34, magnesium (Mg) 0.16, sodium (Na) 0.19, potassium (K) 0.02, (% on dry matter basis) Copper (Cu) 4.39, Zinc (Zn) 37.30, Iron (Fe) 1062.00, Manganese (Mn) 28.87, Cobalt (Co) 3.85, Chromium (Cr) 11.30 (ppm). The findings of this research highlight the potential uses of he Shea Nut Cake as one of the agro-industrial by-product and it can used as feed ingredient for the feeding of livestock after proper screening for Anti nutritional factors.
