ABSTRACT

 The proximate analysis of immature stages (larvae, pupae) and adult beetles of Callosobruchus maculatus was carried. This was achieved by culturing the various nutritional content at the laboratory of Food Science and Technology Department of the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike. The various stages of > C. maculatus were found to contain crude proteins, crude fiber, fats, ash, moisture and carbohydrate in appreciable quantities. The percentage composition of the crude protein and carbohydrate were as high as 37.00% and 37.25% respectively for the immature stages and the adult bruchid. Callosobruchus maculatus contained also appreciable quantities of fats and moisture content. The immature stages recorded 12.04% for moisture while the adult recorded 11.94%. Larvae and pupae have high content of fat (28.5%) than adult stages (25.5%). Ash content of nutritional stand point, Callosobruchus maculatus- has been found to be rich in protein and based on the results its consumption should be integrated into human and animal diets.
