Evaluation of taramira oil-cake and reduction of its glucosinolate content by different treatments

Auteur(s) / Author(s)


Résumé / Abstract

Taramira (Eruca saliva) is a highly drought resistant oil seed crop belonging to Cruciferae family for the areas having very light soils. Forage, whole seed, and mainly oil-cakes are used for animal feeding. Present studywas conducted to evaluate taramira oil-cake with a comparison to mustard-cake and to see the effect of different treatments to reduce glucosinolate content of taramira-cake. Crude protein. ether extracts and crude fibre content of taramira-cake (40.79, 9.52, and 6.98%). were somewhat higher than mustard-cake (37.97. 4.28 and 3.52%). Among the individual glucosinolates, glucoerucin. a two-sulphur atom containing glucosinolate, was the major one in TMC (92%), whereas, it was gluconapin in MC (66%). However, total glucosinolate content of both the cakes was 45.35 and 47.86 μmol/g DM respectively. Erucic acid was higher in TMC (47.31%) than in MC (33.94). Other unsaturated fatty acids were almost similar in both the cakes. The major glucosinolate (glucoerucin) and total glucosinolate content of TMC was decreased by CuSO. treatment (W/W). Therefore It can he coneluded that taramira oil-cake is equally good in nutritive value as mustard-cake. Both water soaking and CusO4 treatment are effectively reduced glucosinolate content of tarmira-cake.
