The research described in this report was aimed at determining lysine availability values in canola meal (CM) and cottonseed meal (CSM) samples form major processors in Australia. The amino acid, lysine, was chosen for this initial investigation because of its known susceptibility to heat damage during processing of CM and CSM. Therefore, this study attempts to identify the extent to which the utilisation of the critical amino acid lysine is impaired in current CM and CSM from major Australian processors, some of which use more heat than others. Different oil extraction methods are also used. 2004, 33pgs, Pub NO. 04/144; $16
