Composition and nutritive value of chickpea

Ramalho Ribeiro J.M.C., Portugal Melo I.M.

The chemical compostion of some samples of chickpea was studied and compared with published values. A critical evaluation of the different nutrients is presented, in particular the aminoacid content. These parameters are analysed in terms of animal requirements and the chickpea has been evaluated as a protein and an energy source of diets for non-ruminant and ruminant animals. The importance and the nutritive value of the chickpea straw is also mentioned.
