Feeding a diet containing resistant potato starch influences gastrointestinal tract traits and growth performance of weaned pigs
Using a rate of 0.5% – 1.0% of Resistant Starch has a beneficial impact on fecal scores in pigs. Pigs fed MSP[RS] Resistant Starch showed an improved fecal score during the first 14 days after weaning. The pigs were found to have fewer Branched Chained Fatty Acids (BCFA’s), higher Volatile Fatty Acids (VFA’s), and a reduced pH in the cecal and ileal digesta. Research demonstrates that these attributes contribute to the overall well being of the pig, and has a positive impact on the gut health of the animal. Link here to see the study!
