Technical Short Communications


Defatted seed meal from oranges and grapefruit contained more sulfur amino acids but less lysine than some common oilseed proteins. Grapefruit seed meal had less tryptophan and more sulfur amino acids than orange seed meal. Probable annual yields of Florida citrus seed oil, meal and hulls are 17, 23 and 13 million lb, respectively.
