Edible CottonSeed Could Feed Millions
12/01/2009

A Texas researcher has found a way to reduce the toxins in cottonseed to make it edible not just for cattle, but also pigs, chickens, fish and humans.

Researchers have worked for decades to neutralize gossypol, the poison found in cottonseed that only bovines' multiple stomachs can digest.

Keerti S. Rathore, a Texas A&M University researcher, says he has discovered how to shut off gossypol production in the seeds but leave it in stems, leaves, flowers and tissue where the toxin is needed for protection from insects and disease.

Researchers say the amount of cotton grown worldwide contains enough protein to feed 500 million people per year.
