Abstract: In the present study, the first report of Mesembryanthemum (Opophytum ) forsskalii Hochst. ex Boiss Al-Samh has been documented in the southern desert of Jordan, particularly (Al-Jafer). M. forsskalii was widely planted and well-known in the local community as Al-Samh. The chemical composition of sameh seeds collected from the south desert of Jordan have been studied. Proximate analysis showed a composition of 23.2% protein, 11.5% moisture, 4.4% fat, 6.6% ash, 9.1% crude fiber, and total carbohydrates. ADF and NDF percent were 19.2 and 32.5, respectively. Al-Samh flour was clearly noted used by local people in the region of study. The results build the scientific stone for Al-Samh value. As Al-Samh seeds are a rich source of protein and could be used for producing high protein products, It could be promising to make bread and cookies or any other traditional food in the region.

Munir, Muhammad Jurhadi and Rahmawati Semaun

Abstract:This study aimed to examine the effect of supplementing moringa leaf meal on offal Mojosari ducks. This study used 60 female Mojosari ducks aged 3 weeks and used three different types of feed as treatments and one different type of feed as controls, with three replications for each treatment. The treatment with feed supplementation was P0 = 0% moringa leaf meal, P1 = 5% moringa leaf meal, P2 = 10% moringa leaf powder, and P3 = 15% moringa leaf meal. The parameters observed were offal, consisting of liver, heart, head, legs, feathers, and blood. The data obtained in this study were processed using analysis of variance and continued with the Duncan test. The results showed that the addition of moringa leaf powder had no effect (non-significant) (P > 0.05) on the offal of Mojosari ducks, namely the weight of the liver, heart, and feathers, while the weight of the head, legs, and blood showed a significant effect (P<0.05). Therefore, this study concluded that the addition of moringa leaf meal generally had an impact on the weight of the offal component of Mojosari ducks at the 15% level.
