Does the Energy of Peas Depend on Their Composition
Composition varies largely throughout pea samples in the Prairies. This variation may affect the energy value of the peas and therefore the energy supplied to the pigs. Protein and starch content had a wide variation while the energy variation was much lower, probably due to starch and protein not having a huge impact on energy digestion. Protein and starch content do not predict the energy content in peas.
