Dietary Resistant Potato Starch Alters Intestinal Microbial Communities and Their Metabolites, and Markers of Immune Regulation and Barrier Function in Swine

Dietary Resistant Potato Starch Alters Intestinal Microbial Communities and Their Metabolites, and Markers of Immune Regulation and Barrier Function in Swine

Research

This research demonstrated that MSP[RS] Resistant Starch has a beneficial impact on the intestinal health of weaning pigs. At an inclusion rate of 5%, there was an increase in SCFAs, including butyrate, and other potentially beneficial bacteria populations when compared to a diet that did not have MSP[RS] included. Other benefits include an increase in markers of mucosal barrier function, and immune tolerance such as IL-6, which is the gene critical for maintaining mucosal barrier function, and a strong IgA response. This study shows that pigs consuming MSP[RS] are healthier, and more resistant to pathogens. Link here to read the article!
