  1. Data represents the mean ± standard deviation (n = 5). Within columns means followed by the same letter are (a, b or c) are not significantly different between treatments according to the Tuckey’s test (p = 0.05). While, within columns means followed by the different letter (a, b and c) are significantly different between treatments according to the Tuckey’s test (p = 0.05)
