Abstract

Defatted Madhuca flour is toxic due to the presence of saponins. Alcohol, 20-95%, was used to remove the saponins and it was found that two stage 60% ethanol extraction removed 90% of the saponins present in the flour. Rat feeding trials using the ethanol extracted flour at 10 and 15% protein levels yielded PER of 0.8 and 1.5 respectively and did not show any ill effects other than minor cytoplasmic vacuolation in liver and kidney in histological studies.
