ResumenTannin contents of stems, flowers and leaves of four shrub species (Erica arborea, Erica australis, Cytisus cantabricus and Genista occidentalis) were chemically assessed using two colorimetric assays (butanol-HCl and Folin-Ciocalteu) and several standards (tannic acid, purified quebracho condensed tannins (CT) and purified CT extracted from each species). A method based on the biological activity of tannins in the rumen was also used for assaying tannins. Depending on the species, the use of quebracho tannin as standard over- or underestimated CT contents, in comparison to the use of the respective internal standard. However, the high correlationship observed between in vitro gas production in the presence or absence of polyethylene glycol (PEG) and CT contents estimated from quebracho suggests that this standard could be used for a quicker estimate of the nutritive value of tannin-containing plants. Tannin contents obtained by the Folin-Ciocalteu method, using tannic acid as standard, were also related to their activity on rumen fermentation. The use of the in vitro gas production technique, in the absence or presence of PEG, may provide more useful information than the chemical assays when the final aim of tannin analysis is to assess the nutritive value of feedstuffs for ruminants.
