Palm Kernel Oil Residue (PKOR) is a waste product obtained after extracting oil from palm kernel by cottage industries. The residue is dumped at processing sites and the stench that emanates from the oxidizing product, causes nuisance to processors and nearby residents. Animal scientists are advocating the use of the fresh product as energy resourc...

This study was conducted to determine the potentials of Sodom apple (Calotropis procera) extract as a sole coagulant of soymilk during soy cheese production. Four alum concentrations were prepared and used as control treatments: A5 (0.5 % conc.), A10 (1.0 % conc.), A15 (1.5 % conc.) and A20 (2.0 % conc.). Four strengths of Calotropis procera extrac...

A study was conducted to evaluate the effect of Boiled Mango Kernel Meal (BMKM) on the carcass characteristics and sensory qualities of guinea fowl meat. Dietary maize was substituted with four levels of inclusion of BMKM at 0% (T1), 10% (T2), 15% (T3) and 20% (T4). Forty-eight, 16 week old birds; 12 birds per treatment were randomly selected from...

A study was conducted to assess the effects of less-saturated fats [Egg yolk (EY) and soya oil (SO)] on characteristics and acceptability of beef sausages. Each of the fats was incorporated in beef sausages at three levels (5%, 10% and 15%), and compared with products formulated with only lean beef (Control). Fresh boneless beef was obtained and th...

Tyres are reported to contain toxic materials which could pose health threats to humans. However, some butchers in Ghana singe carcasses of small ruminants with scrap car tyres. This study was therefore conducted to determine the heavy metal concentrations of carcasses singed with scrap tyres, and the effect of boiling on the heavy metal concentrat...
