  1. Means followed by the same letter(s) within a column are not significantly (P ≤ 5.0) different according to Duncan’s multiple range test
  2. Total protein content: protein content was determined by Kjeldal method for the calculation of all protein which equal nitrogen content multiplied by 6.25 (A.O.A.C. 1990)
  3. **Calculated from nitrogen content
