Volvarieella esculenta (Olu iju), roots of Jatropha curcas
(Botuje) and Microdesmis puberula (Ako osunsun), Xylopia villosa (Eru awonka), Trona (Kahun bilala) and Baissea axillaris (Imu nla) are boiled with fermented maize water.
has been introduced as a non-conventional oilseed crop on experimental basis.
Jatropha (Jatropha curcas
(L.)) is a biofuel crop planted worldwide in tropical climates to produce biodiesel and, secondarily, other products such as soap (Achten et al., 2008; Henning 2008; Gbemavo, 2014).
Jatropha cinerea, a wild species relative close to Jatropha curcas
(the most representative of the genus), is widely distributed along the coast of Sonora, the Baja California Peninsula and Sinaloa (TURNER et al.
seeds has been examined with various bioassays by using animals such as cattle, goats and fish as test systems.
The crude protein of DJM was higher than SBM, and the levels of essential amino acids except lysine in Jatropha curcas
kernel meal were higher than that for the FAO reference protein , which were similar with the results from our study.
, commonly known as physic nut, is a tropical plant of the Euphorbiaceae family.
The oils tested in this experiment were coconut, jatropha curcas
, and sunflower, and their fatty acid compositions are tabulated in Tables 1, 2, and 3, respectively.
seed oil is one of the most important alternative nonedible types of vegetable oils for biofuel production .
