Extract

Tannins can produce toxic and anti-nutritional effects in monogastric and ruminant animals: reduced feed intake, lower nutrient digestibility and protein availability. Leucaena leucocephala has high concentration of condensed tannins (about 6 % CT), however is probably the most widely in use tree legume in the world. The aim of this experiment was to evaluate different treatments to deactivate tannins in Leucaena leucocephala.
