The protein content of caster (Ricinus communis) seed meal varies from 21 to 48% depending upon the extent of decertification and oil extraction. It has an ideal amino acid profile with moderately high cystine, methionine and isoleucine. But its antinutritional substances called the ricin, ricinine and an allergen restricts its use in poultry even at low levels of inclusion. Processing of caster meal by heating at 80 c temperature in the presence of GN ammonia or an acid or alkali reduces the toxic content sub­stantially. Detoxified meal needs to be effectively corrected for lysine.
