Apparent digestibility of dried tomato skins with or without seeds, also of diets with 10% of the combined byproducts or 10% oats, was tested on New Zealand White rabbits. Net energy value of skins with seeds reached 2839 kcal/kg DM and of skins alone only 1303 kcal/kg probably because of their high content of indigestible fibre.
