Chemical, In-vitro Protein Digestibility, Minerals and Amino Acids Composition of Edible Peanut Seeds (Arachis hypogaea L.)
M.A.Y. Abdualrahman
Abstract: Peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is the third important oil seed crop of the world in production after soybean and cotton. This study aimed to evaluate the nutritional value of edible peanut seeds grown under rainfed area of Darfur region. For this, peanut was carried out in term of chemical, in-vitro protein digestibility, minerals and amino acids. The proximate analysis of raw peanut was moisture (5.90.01%), protein (28.970.03%), ash (3.640.01%), fat (47.940.01%), crude fiber (3.170.02%), total carbohydrates (10.380.01%) and in-vitro protein digestibility (92.650.02%). On the other hand, sodium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and zinc contents were (2.100.03, 590.01, 254.50.01, 2.30.03 and 3.70.02 mg 100 g-1), respectively. The amino acids results indicated that peanut was superior with respect to phenylalanine, leucine, isoleucine and valine when comparable to those of FAO reference pattern.
