Abstract:

The need for alternative protein sources to soybean meal, partially or fully substituted in the diets of dairy cows, is an urgent problem in farming nowadays. Soybean meal is the most common protein source included in feed concentrate for dairy cows in Latvia and in other European countries as well. Among possible alternatives, grain legumes seem interesting for dairy cow diets because of their rapid degradation in the rumen and readily available energy. Peas and beans will be an important source of proteins in feed. Biochemical tests were done on eight samples of domestically grown dried peas of average size, 11 samples of dried beans of average size and some samples of soybean meal to examine the chemical composition of the peas and beans. Peas and beans were included in the feed ration during a feeding trial on dairy cows. Milk yields and milk quality parameters were examined in the trial. The digestibility of peas of most varieties and breeding lines examined was considerably higher than that of soybean meal, while the digestibility of beans of all the varieties and breeding lines examined and of soybean meal was the same. The peas contained more reducing sugars, starches and had a higher value of NEL than the tested beans, which meant the peas had a higher nutritional value. The diets comprising beans and peas fed to the dairy cows increased the fat and protein contents of milk, compared with the control group and the beginning of the trial. The total amount of amino acids increased in the bulk milk samples of all the trial groups during the feeding trial.

Abstract:

Two types of rowan powder (botanical species Sorbus aucuparia) as unconventional
raw ingredients of high nutritional and biological value as well as three types of dietary fiber
and pectin were used in development of gluten-free bread. These raw ingredients have high
water-holding capacity and a rich biochemical composition that makes it possible to use them
not only as thickeners and structure forming agents, but also as enriching additives. It was
experimentally found that the citrus fiber and pectin improved the bread specific volume and
the crumb compressibility if compared to the control sample. The content of vitamins A, E, PP,
C, B complex, minerals – iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, selenium, organic acids,
including preservatives rendering action (citric, lactic, sorbic, benzoic) were found in rowan
powder. It was found that rowan powder and citrus fiber had a significant effect on the increase
in the content of dietary fiber in 2.5–5.4 fold and iron in 2–3.5 fold. The content of dietary fiber
in bread with 4% of rowan fruit powder is 3.6 g 100g-1 while in bread with 8% rowan pomace it
is 4.3 g 100g-1, which corresponds to the dietary fiber daily needs satisfaction respectively by
10.0% and 21.5%. It was found that bread with rowanberry powder had 66.7% more watersoluble
antioxidants. The contamination of the main gluten-free raw material (soy protein, rice
flour and corn starch extrusion and corn, rowan powder) and its influence on ropy disease of
gluten free bread were established. Four spore forming bacteria strains were isolated from
gluten-free raw materials and its ability to cause ropy disease of gluten free bread was proved. It
was also found that using of rowan powder slow down ropy disease and mold spoilage due to
the organic acids in its composition and the bread acidity increase.

Abstract:

The nutritional value of little known legumes was studied. Grass pea, old variety of pea,  dark  varieties  of  beans  and  chickpea  were  processed  into  flour,  farina,  flakes  and  malt. These  raw  materials  were  added  into  bread,  bakery  products,  pastas,  spreads  and  desserts; tempeh  was  prepared  by  fermentation  with  Rhizopus  mould.  Foods  with  legumes  were submitted  to  nutritional  evaluation  and  sensory  analysis.  The  addition  of  legumes  to  bakery goods increased proteins and fibre content and decreased the energy value. The level of ODAP and α- galactosides decreased significantly during tempeh preparation.
