    Abstract

    SHORT supply and high cost of traditional ingredients affect efficientlivestock productionglobally. This has driven interest in alternative cheap materials mostly products of agro-industrial processing to replace traditional feed ingredients. Products such as discarded roots, leaf, peel and pulp are wasted or dumped in landfills in many developing regions, which could replace part of the expensive feed ingredients in livestock feeding. Cassava (Manihotesculenta Crantz) processing emitsseveral products such as peel, pulp and leaves. The sebeneficial cassava products are underutilised and more investigation is warranted to improve its utilisation, reduce feed cost and environment sustainability. Cassava peel, pulp and leaves are potential cheap feed ingredients for poultry feeding. However, these products may contain anti-nutritional factors such as cyanogenic glucosides which affect their maximum utilisation in poultry feeding. Several factors such as cultivar, stage of maturity, cyanide levels and processing methods affect the utilisation of cassava products in poultry diets. Several processing techniques have been used to reduce cyanogenic glucosides concentration to safe levels and enhance the utilisation of the products in poultry diets. This paper discusses the anti-nutritional factors affecting cassava utilisation, processing methods to reduce cyanide levels and future of cassava products for poultry feeding.
