Amino acid digestibility of meat and bone meals for broiler chickens
Variation in the apparent ileal digestibility of amino acids in 19 meat and bone meal samples, obtained from commercial rendering plants in New Zealand, was determined using 5-week-old broilers.Expand

Comparison of the Ileal Digestibility of Amino Acids in Meat and Bone Meal for Broiler Chickens and Growing Rats
The apparent ileal amino acid digestibility in 15 meat and bone samples was compared in growing broiler chickens and growing laboratory rat. The animals were given a diet containing meat and boneExpand

Effects of early dietary intervention with a fermentable fibre on colonic microbiota activity and mucin gene expression in newly weaned rats
Abstract Colonic microbiota composition and metabolic processes were investigated after modifying the diet immediately post-weaning in rats. Three-week old Sprague–Dawley rats were fed cellulose orExpand

Evaluation of gastrointestinal transit in rats fed dietary fibres differing in their susceptibility to large intestine fermentation
Abstract The rate and extent of in situ digesta transit after ingestion of diets containing dietary fibres differing in their susceptibility to large intestine fermentation were investigated. OneExpand

Effects of dietary broccoli fibre and corn oil on serum lipids, faecal bile acid excretion and hepatic gene expression in rats
To determine the effects of broccoli fibre and corn oil on lipid metabolism, male Sprague–Dawley rats were fed diets containing high (30%) or low (5%) corn oil, in combination with either 7.5%Expand

Influence of Dietary Avocado on Gut Health in Rats
This study investigated the impact of diets containing various levels of avocado (5, 10 and 15%) on gut health in rats fed for six weeks. Avocado-fed rats had significantly higher food intakes whileExpand

Prebiotic effects of fermentable carbohydrate polymers may be modulated by faecal bulking of non‐fermentable polysaccharides in the large bowel of rats
This study investigated the impact of supplementary fermentable polysaccharides inulin (a prebiotic) and barley I²â€glucan on the large bowel, when consumed against a background high or low intakeExpand

Influence of kiwifruit on gastric and duodenal inflammation-related gene expression in aspirin-induced gastric mucosal damage in rats
Kiwifruit (KF) contains bioactive compounds with potential anti-inflammatory properties. In this study, we investigated the protective effects of KF on gastric and duodenal damage induced by solubleExpand
Apparent ileal digestibility in broilers of amino acids in meat and bone meal.
amino acid digestibilities was ash content. All the correlation coefficients were negative and all, with the exception of cystine, threonine and histidine, were significant (P<0.05 and P<0.01). OtherExpand
