Abstract: Tomatoes are cultivated on large scale in most part of the world for various culinary products like ketchups, soups,sauces, puree and juice. About 10-30 %of the raw tomato waste including cuttings,peels, seeds and pomace is generated by these industries. Tomato pomace contains up to 25% high-lysine protein and 242parts per million (ppm) of α- tocopherol(vitamin E). This waste is generally dumped here and there or used in dairies as cattle feed because these animals can digest it. Broilers can digest only 5%pomace in the diets and chickens are able to digest it as high as 15%.
