PEREIRA, E.S. et al. Energetic value from by-product of the brazil agroindustria. Arch. zootec. [online]. 2009, vol.58, n.223, pp.455-458. ISSN 0004-0592.
It was evaluated the carbohydrate and protein fractions of cashew, passion fruit, melon, Bixa orellana, pineapple and acerola by-products; it was estimated and valided the energy value of the feeds from the NRC (2001). The carbohydrate and protein fractions and TDN values changed substantially between by-products. It was concluded that the analysis of the carbohydrate and protein fractions of by-products must be laboratory routine. The observed and predict TDN values of the feeds by NRC (2001) equations were similar, being appropriate for estimating the energy value of the feeds.
