Hi

I had some trouble understanding exactly what your question was, but I found the following links on water lettuce that seem relevant to what I think your question is. The major use of water lettuce by man seems to be in water purification - otherwise it seems to be mostly a weed or an animal feed.

Here is a paper on the nutritional content of water hyacinthm which is related to, but not, water lettuce:

Here are some more relevant articles to your question. Access to more than the abstract online costs money, but you may be able to access them free by contacting a local university library or working through your local community library, or writing to the authors of the papers.
